ICROA will participate in / lead two webinars discussing the future of the voluntary carbon market this week:

Wednesday 8 July: Innovate4Climate: Stronger Voluntary Market - New rules to raise the bar post-2020

The voluntary carbon market has rebounded with soaring demand, leading to more visibility as well as greater scrutiny. In parallel, maturing market conditions and the imminent onset of the Paris Agreement rulebook, alongside insights from 15+ years' experience in project certification prompt an evolution of standards to maintain the credibility of the voluntary market and ensure that carbon finance goes where it has highest impact and does not compromise policy or corporate ambition. Working in collaboration with civil society, governments, and market actors, Gold Standard poses new requirements for the voluntary carbon market to ensure integrity on the supply side, as well as guidance to preserve credibility for buyers' side to reboot markets for the utmost integrity post-2020.

  • Moderator: Sarah Leugers, Gold Standard
  • Speakers:
    • Marie-Pierre Bousquet, Danone
    • Owen Hewlett, Gold Standard
    • Silke Karcher, BMU 
    • Brad Schallert, WWF
    • Lambert Schneider, Oeko Institute
    • Jonathan Shopley, ICROA
