Article of the MonthArticle of the Month for November 2021 is  'Putting carbon markets to work on the path to net zero' – McKinsey

From the abstract

Of the five or six big ticket items to emerge from COP26 in Glasgow, none was more important than the debate around carbon. A thorough understanding of the role of compliance and voluntary global carbon markets is, therefore, a sine qua non for governments, institutions and corporations when planning a net zero emissions pathway.

This paper by McKinsey helps to demystify the carbon markets topic and is worth scanning for that purpose alone. The authors highlight the hidden potential in the voluntary markets and recommend three ways in which VCMs can be leveraged by investors in the fight against climate change: the allocation of more venture capital to stimulate the supply of innovative climate solutions, support for high
standards of market integrity and governance, and use of their influence to force corporate disclosures around CO2 performance and their net zero carbon plans.

We hope you enjoy reading it and please do get in touch with any comments and suggestions.
