Glasgow / Virtual

Nature+Zone (Blue Zone) [invitation only] | Watch it live

Convenor: UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
Global leaders from across government, the private sector, civil society and indigenou communities discuss what is needed to ensure voluntary carbon markets are high integrity and accelerate additional action towards the 1.5C goal, while supporting inclusive, sustainable development globally. Keynotes and panel discussions interrogate what ‘integrity’ means, on both demand and supply sides, in order to identify shared challenges and pathways for collaborative solutions. Representatives from key initiatives supporting high integrity working together on these topics also discuss their next phases of work.
