Welcome to the Carbon Markets Forum for 2024, focusing on carbon offsetting as a pivotal strategy in combating climate change.

As the Voluntary Carbon Market (VCM) is projected to expand from $2 billion in 2020 to approximately $250 billion by 2050, this segment presents a unique opportunity to connect with investors funding new technologies, carbon project developers, and facilitators aiming for scale. Engage with corporates, multinationals exploring new credit markets, traders, and brokers.

We'll provide in-depth insights into the evolving carbon and natural capital markets, contributing to a sustainable future and aligning with Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles. Join us in navigating this critical aspect of environmental sustainability.
