The voluntary carbon market after Glasgow: How does the Article 6 rulebook shape the VCM and what options do stakeholders have?

Six years after the adoption of the Paris Agreement and following years of intense negotiations, Parties at COP26 in Glasgow finally adopted the Article 6 rulebook that will govern the international carbon market. While the decisions taken at COP26 primarily relate to the voluntary cooperation among Parties under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, they also shape the future functioning of the voluntary carbon market (VCM). This market is currently thriving and expected to grow further as businesses, organisations and individuals are increasingly seeking to voluntarily reduce their carbon footprint. This workshop will unpack the Glasgow decision and explore what it means for the VCM and its stakeholders. We will discuss what options private certification standards have in light of the Article 6 rulebook, how adequate corporates strategies might look like and whether there is an additional need for regulation from national governments.
