Investors, businesses and institutions alike are increasingly turning to the carbon market to become more sustainable and offset their carbon emissions. Innovation and new technologies have created new opportunities to finance climate action that not only delivers emissions reductions, but economic, health and social benefits too. But how can we know that carbon offsetting projects are effective?

Join our webinar to find out what Gold Standard certification is, why it’s important for carbon offsetting and how to get your projects certified. We’ll hear from Namene Solar, who recently received the certification for their solar lights, and get the carbon-buying perspective from Plan A, a Berlin startup that enables companies to offset their emissions. We’ll then discuss technology versus nature-based solutions with expert Johannes Ebeling and answer audience questions.
