The voluntary carbon market can be complex to navigate. Yet, carbon credits play a role in voluntary climate commitments, whether it is to reach carbon neutrality or to neutralise emissions to reach net zero in line with the Science Based Targets initiative.

How, when and what to procure are questions that many companies are starting to consider. To help companies answer them our team has developed a 10-step guide.

Watch our launch webinar

Watch our webinar where our team present the guide and go through several implementation strategies.

We explore the main approaches companies are taking, how to set a budget, tackle quality challenges, and how to secure buy-in from internal stakeholders.

About the guide

The guide is sector-agnostic and does not prescribe a specific strategy for companies to adopt. Instead, it provides a range of options for companies to consider, from the scope of their procurement efforts to the best way to finance their strategy.
