Executive Summary

The voluntary carbon market has become re-energized in recent years, as ESG climbs to the top of the corporate agenda. Historically, the market was limited in size and undermined by a lack of confidence in the suitability of voluntary credits as a mechanism for decarbonization. Agreement on Article 6 at COP26 in 2021 has reawakened the market, with the value topping $1 billion in 2021.

This webinar charts the development of voluntary carbon markets, examines the impact of Article 6 and identifies key corporate trends that will shape the market in the years to come. Executives should use this webinar to inform decarbonization strategies and better understand the current and future path of the voluntary carbon market.
