Strategic Guide to the Voluntary Carbon Market Ecosystem
Last updated: September 2022
This guide provides a comprehensive overview of how the voluntary carbon market operates today.
The voluntary carbon market provides an opportunity for organisations to accelerate their efforts to reduce their climate impact. Many firms, however, have no or limited experience of carbon markets.
This guide provides such firms with an introduction to the voluntary carbon market ecosystem. It explains the market’s history, how it differs to regulated markets, why it is growing fast, how carbon credits are created and transacted, and gives some examples of the different organisations operating in the market today. More detailed insights on the voluntary carbon market ecosystem are available to Trove’s subscribers and advisory clients.

This guide provides an ongoing guide for companies when setting corporate climate targets and the use of carbon credits.
It is structured as a series of ‘frequently asked questions’ that often arise in our discussions with corporate clients and through our interactions with key non-governmental organisations, think tanks and investors.
For each topic area and question we provide our most up to date assessment of the state of play and the potential ‘direction of travel’. The issues identified and maintained in this document will evolve over time as guidance is updated.

Last updated: December 2022
This guide answers the 10 most frequently asked questions about forest carbon in the voluntary carbon market.
Forest biomes play an important role in moderating atmospheric CO₂, protecting biodiversity, and supporting local livelihoods.

Despite this, there is limited understanding on how these projects work, what risks they have, and how they differ from one another.
This guide provides a comprehensive overview over forest carbon projects in the voluntary carbon market. It explains the nature and extent of forest carbon, the different types of forest carbon projects, and the potential future role of forest carbon in the voluntary carbon market.
