Photo by COP26

This side event explores whether and how carbon crediting can play a role in achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement. 

It explores how carbon footprinting can inform robust climate action, which sectors and activities require assistance through carbon crediting, and how companies’ climate action should be transparently communicated.
