Path 2: Establishing Standards for the Global Voluntary Carbon Market

With the voluntary market in the midst of an unprecented expansion worldwide, efforts have increased to ensure that the voluntary carbon market is equipped to play a critical role in global mitigation efforts. This has led to a variety of efforts to support this market, including the Integrity Council on the Voluntary Carbon Market (ICVCM), the Voluntary Carbon Market Initiative (VCMI), and the Carbon Credit Quality Initiative (CCQI), among others. This session will discuss the role each of these efforts are playing, the challenges they are facing to support credible market efforts going forward, and expectations from various marketplayers.
