Efficient, joined-up carbon markets are an essential tool to support the transition to net zero. In particular, there is a widespread consensus on the need for a global, scalable, voluntary carbon market that will enable companies and investors to build on their net zero strategies by financing activities elsewhere that address their remaining emissions while on the journey to zero.
City & Financial Global is therefore delighted to be hosting the ‘International Carbon Markets Summit’ in London on 30 October.
The summit will provide companies, investors, financial institutions, project developers, traders, infrastructure providers and regulators with an in-depth analysis of the latest developments in the international carbon markets, with a focus on the voluntary carbon market, which McKinsey forecasts will grow to $50 billion by 2030. Among the topics covered by our expert speakers are new measures from the Integrity Council for the Voluntary Carbon Market and the Voluntary Carbon Market Integrity Initiative to improve the quality, governance, transparency, and claiming of carbon credits; progress towards standardising contracts and other documentation; the role of assurance; improving liquidity and infrastructure; and innovations, such as VCM listed funds that provide carbon credits via dividends.
