Join the Bipartisan Policy Center and Agri-Pulse to explore the evolving voluntary carbon market and agriculture’s role in creating a more sustainable future.

The voluntary carbon market is expected to grow from $2 billion in 2021 to $10-40 billion by 2030. Agricultural carbon credits today comprise only about 1% of all carbon credits issued, but innovations to reduce livestock enteric methane emissions are poised to substantially grow this market segment. This represents a crucial opportunity to provide farmers economic incentives for on-farm sustainability efforts and to channel private finance toward much-needed voluntary climate solutions, but policymakers and market participants must work together to ensure that carbon credits represent real, verifiable climate benefits and boost confidence in credit quality.

This event will feature three expert panels on carbon market integrity, livestock-specific carbon credit considerations, and the intersection of policy and market-based climate solutions.

A luncheon will follow the event.
