Attend In-Person | Watch Virtually

Carbon credits present an opportunity to channel private finance toward much needed climate solutions, but low confidence in credit quality threatens to undermine this important tool. Ensuring that carbon credits represent real, verifiable climate benefit is crucial for advancing and increasing the use of carbon credits to drive investment toward worthy projects.


Featuring a fireside chat with Chairman Rostin Behnam of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, please join the Bipartisan Policy Center, Carbon Direct, Inc, and other experts as we discuss a range of perspectives on what the federal government’s role should be in facilitating carbon credit quality and transparency in carbon markets. A new, joint report by BPC and Carbon Direct on government intervention scenarios for carbon credit quality will be unveiled as part of this event.
