Industry Outlook:
Since the release of the Paris Agreement 2015, net-zero commitments have been on the rise and the recently concluded COP26 further accelerated the momentum towards net-zero. COP26 witnessed the zeal of nations to turn the 2020s into a decade of climate action and support. As a result, voluntary carbon markets are becoming increasingly robust and attractive. This growth is driven by the interest of businesses and organizations in cutting emissions using offsets.

The future of the industry seems bright. As it is not very easy for countries to reduce their carbon emission to meet their climate goals, the requirement for services like carbon credits will increase gradually. Every country has two options- either implement a carbon tax or encourage emission trading. The majority of nations consider emission trading as the best system to reduce emissions.
