Carbon markets have come a long way over the last 20 or so years, but we can make them better. Market actors know where the problems are, and they are being addressed. Guardrails are under review; technology is helping us see more clearly what is happening on the ground. In the end, success is about businesses, NGOs and wider society remaining informed about and confident in the voluntary carbon market. Carbon credits, when done correctly, deliver cuts in climate-causing emissions, support communities on the front line and help conserve ecosystems.
