10th OECD Forum on Green Finance and Investment

To what extent can voluntary carbon markets contribute to net zero targets?

Oct 3, 2023 | 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Conference Room CC15

Many net-zero commitments rely on future access to offsets from the voluntary carbon market to “net” residual emissions. Voluntary carbon markets could accelerate progress towards Paris Agreement goals, but their environmental integrity has also been questioned. Several initiatives and regulators are now working to enhance the credibility of credit supply and credit use, as well as the functioning of credit markets. The green finance and investment community could play an important role in accelerating environmental integrity improvements, so that offsets can make a reliable and proportionate contribution in net-zero transitions. This session will focus on the latest developments in the voluntary carbon markets landscape, bringing in experts to discuss key issues and the way forward.
