Is Carbon Market delivering on its promise?

Presented by

Dana Hanby, Alexis Ludwig Leroy

About this talk

The debate about appropriate policy responses to the need for meaningful decarbonization has intensified. Many companies, sectors, and countries have announced their commitment to achieving Net-Zero by 2050 or even earlier. The interim goals, which should address both direct and indirect emissions, often rely on carbon offsets, especially in industries where the move from incremental to structural emissions cuts requires a massive investment. Critics argue that carbon offsetting ‘misses the point’ and fail to address the scale of our emissions crisis. Proponents point out that offsets will be needed in conjunction with net-zero driven pathways to compensate for residual emissions. • But what is the current performance of Compliance and Voluntary Carbon Markets? • How does it differ across the continents? • What is the focus in South America? • Are the goals of the Financial Sector and Project developers aligned? These and many more questions we will explore in conversation with Alexis L. Leroy – the CEO & Founder of ALLCOT Group - a pioneer project development & sustainable services company that offers knowledge, experience and management to initiatives that reduce the emission of GHG to actively combat the climate crisis under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, aligning with the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Objectives of Sustainable Development and the Race to Net-Zero. Alexis is an impact entrepreneur, with vast knowledge and experience in the fields of sustainability, carbon markets, climate change, and the UN SDGs. He is on the Board of CMIA: The Carbon and Investment Markets Association, a founding director and member of the Board of Directors of Sport and Sustainability International, an NGO that leverages the cultural and market influence of sports to promote sustainable and healthy communities, and Co-Chair of the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) Latin-American & Caribbean WG.
