This convening – the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s first-ever on voluntary carbon markets – will gather information from a wide variety of market participants in the voluntary carbon markets to better understand the potential role of the official sector in these markets, particularly as we see the emergence of CFTC regulated derivatives referencing cash offset markets. The convening will include participants from carbon offset standard setting bodies, a carbon registry, private sector integrity initiatives, spot platforms, designated contract markets, intermediaries, end-users, public interest groups, and others.
Stephen Donofrio, Director of Forest Trends’ Ecosystem Marketplace and Supply Change Initiatives, will present EM findings on voluntary carbon markets movements and discuss recent changes and dynamics in the market.
