Webinar Description:

2023 marked a pivotal year for the voluntary carbon market, combining unprecedented government and corporate investment in support of net zero goals, the rapid evolution of the carbon removals market, and critical questions over the integrity of some high-profile carbon credit projects.

As such, 2024 marks a crucial period for both the voluntary carbon market and the many businesses planning to use credible carbon credits in support of their decarbonisation efforts.

The latest BusinessGreen webinar, hosted in association with carbon market platform Patch, will offer an invaluable insight into the trends and challenges that will shape the course of the voluntary carbon market in the months ahead, and offer guidance on how to navigate them.

Our panel of experts will explore the impact of the emerging standards and rules shaping the market, the pros and cons of emerging carbon removal approaches, and how to ensure projects have high-integrity and complement wider decarbonisation efforts.

Key discussion items will include:

  • Standards setting and planning for the future: The current state of standards within the carbon market and insights into what to expect in terms of standards setting. Understanding how to navigate evolving standards is crucial for effective planning. What changes can we anticipate, and how can organisations prepare for what lies ahead?
  • 2024 buying trends and hesitations: Buying trends expected to shape the market in 2024. What shifts are anticipated in terms of demand, and are there any hesitations or uncertainties that may influence market dynamics? 
  • Project developer needs for growth: The essential requirements for project developers to continue growing and scaling climate solutions. What is needed to drive forward sustainable projects, and how can the industry support the acceleration of corporate climate strategies in 2024?

This interactive webinar is free to attend and is part of a series of events from BusinessGreen planned for 2024. You can register for the webinar here.

Jim Mann

Founder / CEO, UNDO Carbon Removal

With a background in ecology, combined with extensive experience in scaling businesses, Jim was drawn to the fight against climate change and the ecological disaster it’s bringing with it. In 2019 Jim co-founded The Future Forest Company - a reforestation effort with a mission to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and restore biodiversity across the UK. Realising that tree planting could only go so far in helping solve the climate crisis, UNDO was born to deliver large-scale carbon removal projects with a permanence of 100,000+ years. Using enhanced rock weathering technology, UNDO spreads crushed basalt rock on agricultural land, permanently removing CO₂ from the atmosphere while improving soil fertility, food security and the health of our oceans. UNDO aims to be the first company to remove one million tonnes of CO₂ by 2025, a first step towards billion-tonne scale global operations. When Jim is not busy creating a liveable planet for future generations, he runs competitively at ultra-distance, his favourite events being 100-mile or more mountain races.
