Picture this: unlocking the secrets of the complex world of carbon markets, and in doing so, driving both environmental performance and social impact. Today, we’re sitting down with none other than Sarang Murthy from Native, a leading voice in corporate sustainability, to take you on that journey. We’re going to tackle the intricacies of the global carbon market, from trust and transparency to a shifting regulatory landscape, and dive into how initiatives like the ICVCM (the Integrity Council for the Voluntary Carbon Market) and VCMI (Voluntary Carbon Markets Integrity Initiative) are setting new rules to increase accountability.
Have you ever wondered about the implications of cheaper offsets on the carbon market? We will answer that question and more in our deep-dive into the economics of ‘low hanging fruit’ and nature-based solutions. Sarang will guide us through understanding the importance of a sound climate strategy and the role of regulations like ARTICLE 6 and the UNFCCC in shaping the voluntary carbon market. Prepare to have your perspective broadened and your knowledge deepened on this critical topic.
Finally, we will explore Forest Trends, discussing their reports on the voluntary carbon market, and potential concerns associated with a surplus of credits. We’ll navigate the dynamics of carbon offsetting, and discuss the hope surrounding a goal of reaching $75 per ton by 2030 to limit global warming. This is a conversation you won’t want to miss. Join us on this insightful journey as we explore how corporations can effectively use carbon offsets to drive environmental performance and positive social impact.
