Nature-Based Reductions and Removals: Registry Updates and Market Supply & Demand

May 17, 2022 

The drivers and market for reductions and removals has solidified over the last year as the guidance for net zero claims has developed. This webinar will introduce participants to the differences between avoided emissions and removals and how they are used in distinct ways to fulfill carbon neutrality and net zero reduction goals.

We will discuss which removals qualify for the new Science-Based Targets Initiative Net Zero Guidance and the future removals demand due to corporate pledges and supply from offset project developers. The webinar will give participants timely updates on the status of removals breakouts in revised offset methodologies and how these removals will appear on public registries. A particular focus will be given to the North American Improved Forest Management project pipeline and how these projects fit into the new removals definitions.

Attendees will hear from carbon offset project developer, Bluesource/Element Markets, and the American Carbon Registry and will come away with a clear picture of the nature-based markets as well as the most current updates likely to affect the near-term development of the market.

With presenters: 

  • Lizzie Aldrich, Vice President of Business Development, Bluesource/Element Markets
  • Ben Massie, Vice President of Environmental Markets, Bluesource/Element Markets
  • Kurt Krapfl, Director of Forestry at American Carbon Registry

Classic to Contemporary: How the Cyclical Nature of Carbon Markets Promotes Innovation

June 8, 2021

As Bluesource celebrates two decades of climate action, we reflect on the trends that have come and gone and come again. Through a Q&A format, we heard from an expert who helped launch the original heyday of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) and get an update on the nouveau CCS movement. We also looked at renewable natural gas and the way that incentives can drive an entire sector from offset credits to Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits. Also, we dove into the preference for carbon removals and how that is driving renewed interest in soil carbon sequestration, and how recently-created protocols differ from earlier versions to create higher quality reductions.
