The carbon removal market requires the same market mechanisms and risk frameworks as those currently present in financial markets. If accounting, credit ratings and insurance can be formalised, there is an enormous opportunity to harness private capital for the carbon removal sector. This report, co-written with carbon insurance specialist Kita,* explains how these traditional capital market mechanisms can be applied to the carbon removal market in order to unlock its growth. 

*As of the time of writing, Kita is a client of BeZero Carbon.

Key Takeaways:

1. The carbon removal industry needs to grow by 1,300-fold in three decades to meet climate targets.

2. Currently the market is stifled by a lack of transparency and needs to develop more trusted risk frameworks (ratings) and products (insurance).

3. Market stakeholders need to boost data transparency and improve understanding of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV), insurance and carbon ratings to unlock the growth necessary.
