Climate Connect News, London: Compliance offset generators in California have formed an industry group to promote their interests and collaborate with the regulators including the Air Resources Board (ARB) to set up and operationalise an effective offset market in the state.

California offset generators form association to promote carbon tradingDrawing on members’ carbon market experiences in California, North America and internationally, Compliance Offset Developers Association (CODA) will communicate with regulators and administrators about the rules, regulations and procedures surrounding greenhouse gas emissions reduction projects governed by the California Greenhouse Gas Cap-and-Trade Program.

“CODA creates a forum for project developers and owners to provide input and expertise to the Air Resources Board and Offset Project Registries as California’s offset program takes shape and developers commit capital to emissions reduction projects,” said Charles Purshouse, the group’s elected chairman. “CODA will actively engage with regulators and other program participants to support a strong, efficient and transparent offset market.”

Membership for the association is accessible to companies that have three or more projects registered with one of the California-approved project types. Current members include A-GAS RemTec, Camco, Coolgas, Inc., Diversified Pure Chem, Environmental Credit Corp, and Terrapass.
