Charting a path towards sustainable business

All countries have committed to limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees centigrade as part of the 2015 Paris Agreement and have pledged to become carbon-neutral by 2050. Increasing awareness of carbon footprints and the challenge of meeting climate-related demands present a significant opportunity for players in voluntary carbon markets to complement national decarbonisation and carbon offset effort and achieve their sustainability goals. Carbon funds are an immediate and cost-effective way for companies to neutralise their carbon footprints. Investment in voluntary carbon markets through carbon funds not only generates carbon credits and enables companies to achieve net-zero goals, but also provides tangible benefits to communities by achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Such investment enables companies to develop a sustainable and responsible business environment and gain increased confidence and trust of shareholders.

Key Takeaways

• Stringent emission norms and increasing carbon taxes are forcing businesses to reduce their carbon footprints
• Carbon offset demand and prices continue to rise as companies become increasingly conscious of the need to achieve carbon neutrality
• Voluntary carbon markets enable companies not only to achieve net-zero goals by investing in projects to reduce carbon emissions, but also to provide tangible benefits to communities
• Carbon funds ensure transition towards net-zero emissions through long-term investment in carbon markets and also make available secure revenue streams for businesses
