Join us at this event led by the World Business Council of Sustainable Development (WBCSD) in partnership with the World Economic Forum (WEF) for a for a deep dive into how voluntary markets can drive finance to climate and nature. We will focus on various sources of finance, including the voluntary carbon credit market and the biodiversity credits market. Our discussion will centre on how finance can be directed to projects on-the-ground that are actively protecting and restoring nature and providing sustainable livelihoods for local communities and Indigenous People. We’ll go into detail on the intricacies of the markets, their differences, similarities and ultimately their impacts – how they make real-world, tangible differences for climate, nature and people. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with industry leaders and experts, and gain valuable insights into the landscape of voluntary markets for nature and climate.
