With numerous “net zero” and “carbon neutrality” pledges being announced, carbon markets are booming, but does this equal climate action? In this webinar, we will discuss the new financial sector-led taskforce to “scale up” the voluntary market, the future of carbon offsets, as envisioned by carbon credit standards, and alternative ways of channelling climate finance proposed by a leading research institute.
