Every business needs to adjust its business model and develop credible transition plans. The Taskforce on Scaling Voluntary Carbon Markets
In the lead-up to COP26 in Glasgow, we saw record numbers of corporates and businesses commit to “net-zero.” Many are well on their way to finalizing or implementing a net-zero plan. More than 2,200 companies – covering over one-third of the global economy’s market capitalization – are now working with the Science Based Targets initiative to reduce emissions in line with the Paris Agreement goals.
The Glasgow COP saw the finalization of the Article 6 rulebook, which provides a detailed framework for the international trading of “mitigation outcomes” that may be counted towards a country’s Nationally Determined Contribution. The framework will incentivize investment in carbon projects and programs that generate greenhouse gas emission reductions and removals.
Compliance carbon markets – such as the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme – have been operating at scale for years. However, it is now expected that voluntary carbon markets will have a significant role to play in the decarbonization effort. The Taskforce on Scaling Voluntary Carbon Markets estimates that these markets will need to grow 15-fold by 2030 to support Paris-aligned targets.
Increasingly, there will be a need to implement climate positive strategies, which involve not only reducing emissions in accordance with science-based targets, but also offsetting the emissions profile of an organization while on the journey to net-zero. The Voluntary Carbon Market Integrity Initiative has embedded this approach in its proposed Claims Code of Practice, released on June 7, 2022.
