What our network is saying about Infospectrum's Voluntary Carbon Market Whitepaper:

“The shipping sector is changing rapidly and there is a lot of information available from a variety of sources around the topic of decarbonization.  Infospectrum’s paper does a wonderful job of explaining voluntary carbon credits and their possible role and value in addressing this challenge for the sector.  The paper goes on to clear up some common misconceptions about the pending inclusion of shipping in the EU-ETS and the related value of any such allowances, coexistence with the voluntary market and credit vs allowance eligibility.  We would recommend that people involved with climate change impact and decarbonization in the shipping sector read this paper to better understand the challenges and opportunities in 2023 and beyond.”
