Five themes for carbon and environmental markets in 2023
2022 saw further progress for the development of carbon and environmental markets, from the COP27 climate summit in Sharm el-Sheikh to the COP15 biodiversity summit in Montreal.
In order to have a material impact on reversing the effects of climate change, keeping temperature rises within Paris Agreement goals, and slowing the global decline in biodiversity, carbon and environmental markets will need to accelerate urgently.
To kick off the year, we have collated some of our key research insights centred around five major themes for 2023: transparency in the Voluntary Carbon Market, scaling carbon removals, the importance of corporates for net zero, emerging markets for co-benefits and biodiversity, and the development of Article 6 markets.
