Natural climate solutions and the rising price of carbon
21st April 2021
This webinar was generously supported by Forest Carbon Ltd, a leader in developing woodland creation and peatland restoration projects for carbon capture and ecosystem services. One thing the current global pandemic hasn’t dampened is a growing interest in natural climate solutions. Throughout 2020 demand for carbon products soared, and momentum is set to build further in 2021 as proactive businesses continue to address their impact by setting ‘carbon neutral’ and ‘net zero’ targets. Voluntary carbon markets are in the spotlight as a result, with the UK’s woodland and peatland-derived carbon credits transacting at higher prices than ever before. But even as prices rise price expectations are rising faster, leading to market uncertainty. In this webinar, Forest Carbon and Natural Capital Partners will bring the buyer’s perspective to bear on the UK’s voluntary carbon market. Between them, they will explore what carbon buyers are looking for in this market, the advantages and drawbacks of UK-derived carbon, and why some projects command a price-premium on the carbon they offer.
