It’s Fall in San Francisco!  And, the climate is changing…

On November 16-17 in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf, the Air & Waste Management Association invites you to join us in an international conference on:

Greenhouse Gas Strategies in a Changing Climate

Under one roof, you’ll get the latest information on climate policy, mandatory GHG reporting, voluntary carbon reporting, climate adaptation planning, climate effects science, and more.

You’ll have networking opportunities and access to high-level officials from government, industry, and environmental organizations, with a packed two-day schedule that includes:

  • Welcomes by Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates, BAAQMD Board Chair
  • Keynote Addresses Jack Broadbent, Executive Office / APCO, Bay Area Air Quality Management Disctrict
  • Panels of senior decision makers from regulatory agencies, the business community, and environmental groups
  • World Resources Institute’s formal launch of its new protocol on Scope 3 and product GHG emissions
  • Nearly sixty scientific papers by authors from around the world

You’ll find out what has worked, what hasn’t, and what’s coming.  So you can make better decisions…in a changing climate.
