Scaling Impact through Carbon Markets

Carbon markets offer a valuable financial mechanism to support global climate ambitions and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

It is not the only solution needed, but an important one as today’s low-carbon technologies are unlikely to be enough to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Carbon credits can help to bridge this gap, especially in the near term. Climate Impact X exists to scale this market.
