Become a member

Carbon Market Watch is a not-for-profit membership association. We welcome members for the positive impact that our working relationship with them can have in the fight against climate change.

Why do we have members?

We believe in bottom-up advocacy and have since 2009 worked with numerous NGOs, activists, journalists and academics in many countries across the world to ensure that climate mitigation policies are fair and effective drivers to limit climate change.

Holding ourselves to the same standard of transparency that we call for in public policy making, we also value the accountability that membership provides. Our members provide vital oversight to the Executive Team.

How our membership works?

Individuals or organisations interested in becoming a member of Carbon Market Watch are strongly encouraged to take a tour of our website.

Members must be formally independent of governments and commercial organisations. Memberships run for a three-year period. They will automatically renew unless either party expresses objection or the relationship has been inactive for the previous two years (no GA attendance or other engagement).

Membership of Carbon Market Watch is not an endorsement of the specific political positions taken by the executive team (which are based on the strategic goals endorsed by the board and the General Assembly). However, alignment with our statutory aims is a condition for membership. Currently, there is no fee for membership.

Here is the list of current CMW members (as of June 2023).

Full membership, which gives the right to vote in our General Assemblies and to be a candidate for the board, is limited to individuals – we count on their idealistic support or professional interest. Applications for full membership are reviewed by the CMW board and then approved by the General Assembly (GA).

Supporting membership is open to individuals or organisations and gives access to our General Assemblies (except voting rights and the possibility to stand for election to the board). Applications for supporting membership are decided by the board alone.
