Hello Earthlings! In today’s episode we are joined by our host Lisa Ann Pinkerton (CEO of Technica Communications), and our guest Sasha Mackler (Executive Director of The Energy Program at the Bipartisan Policy Center). We zoom in on the promising concept of compensating projects that drawdown carbon emissions.
In this discussion of voluntary carbon markets, Sasha and Lisa Ann discuss how carbon credits work, and the reputation challenges the industry faces; most recently with the scandal from credit provider Vera. Sasha outlines how we could improve voluntary carbon markets to encourage more participation and why there’s a move from natural based carbon projects, to ones that are more technology based, plus much, much more!
