Environmental markets are red hot and this asset class looks poised to expand massively in the coming months and years. EMA's first-ever "State of the Markets" Press Round Table will bring together a panel of analysts and journalists to provide their unique perspective on our markets in North America, Europe and beyond.

Speakers will dive into policy moves at the state and federal levels and talk about the key drivers that will propel these markets going forward. The panel will give their thoughts on carbon, REC and renewable fuels markets weigh in on compliance and voluntary markets. Join us for this lively discussion and Q&A.

Date: Wednesday, June 9, 2021

Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pm EDT

Moderator: Jim Kharouf, Communications Director, IncubEx
