“Congratulations to VCMI for the launch of the operable Claims Code of Practice – I would argue that operable is the operative word in the current, very stormy, emissions reduction landscape. At present, corporations that are pursuing climate actions find themselves in the crossfire between those who demand perfection overnight and accuse of greenwashing and those on the other side of the isle who attack the ESG and net-zero commitments – leading to intimidation and green hushing on the part of corporations. The path between the two is very difficult to forge. Increasing scrutiny has to be met with increasing credibility, especially in an unregulated market. Now, we all know that eventually the carbon market will have to become regulated. But in the meantime, it is heartening to see the seriousness with which integrity is being pursued by the VCMI.”
