Keeping you in-the-know on environmental, social and governance developments

If you have anything to do with ESG, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the unprecedented amount of investigative reports, rebuttals and general controversy surrounding carbon offsets in the past few months. Just last week, industry was roiled by a damaging report in The New Yorker about South Pole’s Kariba project. I included a key excerpt from that article in a blog last week if you want the very, very short version.

Even before that article, we were making plans for a podcast series on the reality of offsets today. Part 1 of Carbon Credits Today: Separating the Signal from the Noise is now available on Who better to kick it off than the literal father of carbon offsets and PracticalESG Advisory Board member, Mark Trexler. Mark and I get to the heart of current confusion and controversy surrounding offsets right now – including looking back at previous market efforts and failures that many may not know.

In the podcast, we discuss:

  • What offsets are and how they were originally intended to be used.
  • Current reports and controversy.
  • What corporate users of offsets need to know, including pricing, quality and due diligence matters.
  • Are hundred of millions of dollars in offset project development at risk of failure?
  • What can be learned from the history of the offset markets.

Mark provides additional supporting and background information available here.
