Offsetting's role in emisisons reduction

Jessica Verhagen, vice-president business development and strategy at Ecosphere+, talks with Ian Welsh about how developing impact investment projects that value natural capital can help companies deliver on their climate targets.

She explains how forest credits work to offset corporate emissions, and why the real benefit comes from transformative projects that enhance communities – meaning there is long-term gain across landscapes. They also discuss the consumer-engagement benefits from carbon pricing at the point of sale – something recently trialled by ice cream brand Ben & Jerry’s.

Ecosphere+ sponsored Innovation Forum's 2018 landscapes conference in London.
