Voluntary carbon markets are growing rapidly and have the potential to accelerate climate action. But businesses, investors, governments, and the public are clamoring for clarity.
- How can businesses use carbon credits credibly and what can they confidently claim about their use as part of wider climate plans?
- How can we trust that the use of carbon credits leads to truly additional climate action?
- How can integrity in these markets be assured?
Launched on the 7th of June, at 9:30 AM Eastern VCMI’s Claims Code of Practice will be the go-to guide for organizations navigating this complex landscape and will set out the runway to regulation.
The event unpacks these difficult questions, explain the detail behind the guidance, and set the direction of travel for voluntary carbon markets.
Hosted by VCMI Co-Chairs Rachel Kyte and Tariye Gbadegesin, it features experts in the field, NGOs, and government representatives, as well as a panel discussion with leading businesses. The line-up includes:
- Rt Hon Kwasi Kwarteng MP, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)
