High Quality Carbon Credits and Corporate Net Zero Strategies
Theatre : Energy & Carbon Management Strategy
Carbon credits are not a new concept although are arguably gaining more attention as more entities adopt net-zero targets and are looking at portfolio emissions and ways to reduce them – as well as the growing focus on establishing robust infrastructures to reduce some of the unknowns. Carbon credits are seen by many as a ‘last resort’ but a useful step nonetheless in helping to sequester carbon from the atmosphere.
With global demand for voluntary carbon credits expected to increase fifteen-fold by 2030 and a hundredfold before 2050, carbon markets will become an important driver of the shift to a low-carbon economy.
This session aims to give clarity on:
- Supply side – principles of high-quality carbon credits.
- What makes a credible net-zero transition plan.
