IETA LIVE CARBON MARKETS SERIES - COMPENSATING THE UNAVOIDABLE: A JOURNEY TO AMBITIOUS AND IMPACTFUL ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
October 19, 2021
Hosted by ICROA
Ever more businesses are publicly committing to science-aligned decarbonization pathways. Their journey is driven by an imperative to transform, which requires a credible plan to deliver verifiable impact now and along the way. Inevitably, curbing today’s unavoidable emissions will take decades for the vast majority of businesses, making it all the more challenging to reach a balance between emissions and sinks globally by mid-century.
This is where carbon finance plays a powerful role in raising ambition through investments beyond the value chain for further mitigation. In practice, credible voluntary offsetting should only complement credible decarbonization, and working out the most impactful carbon management strategy is often not straightforward.
Gathering experts from key initiatives in this fast-moving space, this event will shed light on how businesses can leverage offsetting with integrity.
