Article 6 decisions made at COP26 do not directly regulate the VCM, but they are conducive to increased convergence of compliance and voluntary markets. The trade of carbon credits may well continue to thrive outside the Paris Agreement framework, while some of it may align with Article 6 requirements. First and foremost, private sector carbon finance has a critical role to play to scale global climate action: our collective vision should be to incentivize ambitious corporate leadership. The session will discuss the key issues and modalities that will shape the VCM and that will determine how impactful it can be in supplementing government action.
