INNOVATE4CLIMATE: STRONGER VOLUNTARY MARKET - NEW RULES TO RAISE THE BAR POST-2020July 8, 2020

 

OVERVIEW

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.

Speakers

Marie-Pierre Bousquet, Science-Based Targets Implementation Director at Danone

Silke Karcher, Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU)

Brad Schallert, Director of Carbon Market Governance and Aviation at WWF US

Lambert Schneider, Research Coordinator for International Climate Policy at Oeko Institute

Jonathan Shopley, ICROA Co-Chair and Managing Director at Natural Capital Partners

Moderated by Sarah Leugers, Communications Director at the Gold Standard
