Carbon Markets 101 ESG now

    • Investing

REPLAY! This week the voluntary carbon markets integrity initiative or VCMI launched a consultation to assess companies use of carbon offset credits and how they impact progress towards their climate targets. So we decided to replay our carbon markets 101 episode. It is a discussion around companies that use carbon markets and carbon offsets to meet their plans to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon markets, in the broadest sense, turn the power to pollute into a credit that can be bought and sold. They are marketed as one of the major pillars in combating climate change and are an important tool for investors to understand.
