Carbon Market Watch

Scrutinising carbon markets & advocating fair, effective climate protection


Carbon Market Watch

Carbon Market Watch was launched in November 2012 to expand the work of CDM Watch to areas beyond the CDM. We have successfully advocated for major policy changes at the UN and EU level; facilitate stronger civil society participation, and uncover unprecedented scandals in international offsetting schemes.
