What are Platts Carbon Credit Assessments?
Building on the launch of the Platts CEC, interest in the voluntary carbon credit market has continued to evolve. Not only are buyers looking to offset carbon emissions, but there has also been an increased focus on how those emissions are offset, which has led to a surge in demand credits generated by nature-based and community-based projects. Platts suite of carbon credit assessments will provide a comprehensive picture of prices in the swiftly developing global voluntary carbon credits market.
Carbon credits are generated by specific projects that avoid or remove GHG emissions and are verified and validated by a set of independent standards that have been created by coalitions of NGOs and market participants over the last few decades.
