Fireside chat: Racing to net zero with the voluntary carbon market

net-zero

With COP26 ongoing, there is an urgent need to resolve the complexities of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement related to carbon markets and the net zero goals.

We held an informal session last week, seeking to highlight and advance the voluntary carbon markets as a mechanism to reduce emissions, the issues surrounding scaling the voluntary carbon markets globally, and how we can ensure climate impact remains at the heart of our activities.

From Paris Accords to Net Zero, what bold moves do we hope to see from leaders at COP26? What is the importance of carbon pricing and the role of international carbon markets in achieving net zero? What opportunities are in carbon credits as an asset class?

From additionally to double-counting, how can we resolve the challenges facing the voluntary carbon markets? With multiple standards and a lack of regulation, what should companies look out for when offsetting as part of a decarbonization strategy? What do we expect from the year ahead?

We were very honoured to have Michael Sheren, Senior Advisor to Bank of England and UNDP, as our moderator as well as the panel of distinguished speakers – Dr Ma Jun, Chairman of the China Green Finance Committee; Dr Christine Chow, Head of Stewardship of HSBC Global Asset Management; Dr Lorenzo Bernasconi, Head of Climate and Environmental Solutions at Lombard Odier; as well as our Chairman and Co-founder, Dr Bo Bai.
