Source: IETA

1:30pm - 3pm (GMT) | 2:30pm - 4pm (CET) 

How can companies credibly claim so-called “Carbon Neutrality”? How can we ensure high quality of carbon credits? For the Voluntary Carbon Market to drive overall climate ambition in the Paris era companies need to make credible use of carbon credits in their net-zero transition. A diverse panel of stakeholders will address these questions, challenges and opportunities from both buyer and seller perspectives.
