Vote for California II Survey Report

March 21, 2014 by CaliforniaCarbon.info

CaliforniaCarbon.info ran Vote for California II, a stakeholder sentiment survey for California cap and trade, in March 2014. The survey attracted a total of 50 respondents from across several major stakeholder categories in the California cap-and-trade community, including traders, compliance entities, lawyers, brokers, consultants, offset project developers, verifiers, NGOs, industry associations, and professional or academic researchers.

VFC2XThe survey reached a number of interesting conclusions regarding stakeholder opinions and concerns in this market. Some of the stand-out ones included:

– 66% of respondents think 2017 would be too late to set a midterm target

– 60% of respondents are concerned that, whether or not it passes, the Steinberg bill is a threat to California cap and trade

– 46% of respondents believe that the ARB should consider increasing the offset usage cap if doing so will help increase liquidity and investment in the program

– More respondents thought California would be the only Pacific ETS, than that the four Pacific collaborative signatories would come together into a single regional ETS.
