Given the numerous commitments being made by corporations and other organisations to net-zero targets or carbon neutrality, it is clear that the role of carbon markets will need to expand.

Indeed, it is estimated that to put the economy on the path towards 1.5 degrees by 2050, there needs to be a 15-fold increase in the use of voluntary carbon markets.

Critical to the ongoing and expanded use of carbon markets is ensuring that future carbon credits are of high quality and have both environmental and social integrity.

Our speakers from Market Advisory Group and Norton Rose Fulbright answer these questions and more during the session:

  • What are carbon markets?
  • What is the difference between compliance and voluntary carbon markets?
  • What carbon credit schemes currently exist?
  • How do I go about purchasing carbon credits?
  • How do I know if I am purchasing quality carbon credits?
  • What legal issues should I consider when purchasing credits?
  • Is there a difference between carbon neutrality and net-zero?
  • How carbon markets operate and what market participants need to know about using carbon credits as part of their decarbonisation strategy.
