The Taskforce on Scaling Voluntary Carbon Markets has highlighted the growing scale (and growing pains) of the global voluntary carbon market. It has also highlighted the issues that need to be addressed for it to contribute at sufficient scale to help achieve the global warming goals of the Paris Agreement. The Taskforce found six key areas where efforts are required to achieve a large, transparent, verifiable, and robust voluntary carbon market; these areas are 1) establishing core carbon principles, 2) core carbon reference contracts, 3) infrastructure, 4) offset legitimacy, 5) market integrity, and 6) demand signaling. For our next #CMICarbonConversations, we are delighted to be joined by Sonja Gibb, Managing Director and Head of Sustainable Finance at the Institute of International Finance, which sponsors and coordinates the Taskforce. Joining her will be Ben Stuart, Chief Commercial Officer at CBL Markets and Neeti Tandon, Strategy Lead, Asia & Oceania, Environmental Product Trading at Shell Energy. Sonja will discuss the background to the Taskforce and next steps. CMI members Ben and Neeti will share their insights as brokers and buyers in the global carbon marketplace.
