Natural Climate Solutions carbon credits: Help us define what high-quality means

Location: Hub Space at Place Québec 
Host: Natural Climate Solutions Alliance (NCSA)
Date: 15 December 2022
Time:  12:00 – 12:45 EST

Description: The role of Natural Climate Solutions (NCS) is clear, as well as the fact that the voluntary market can play an important role in financing these interventions. To help credit purchasers in selecting high-quality NCS credits, that is credits generated from projects that deliver climate mitigation outcomes, biodiversity gains and benefit for people, the NCS Alliance and BCG are developing a Buyer’s Guide to Natural Climate Solutions Carbon Credits. The Guide is intended to help procurement officers identify and purchase NCS carbon credits that fulfill the tripartite NCS goals of carbon mitigation, biodiversity gains, and benefits to people. With a focus on biodiversity conservation and benefits to people, the Guide proposes six steps to setting up a procurement system and a series of questions to engage suppliers in a conversation about the biodiversity and social outcomes of the NCS project. 

During this session, the participants will have the opportunity to share their feedback on the Draft Guide before the comment phase closes in mid-December.  

This page will soon be updated with further information, including speakers and potential livestream options.
