Forest Restoration: Climate Offset for Business

Monday 9th December, 2 to 3.30pm, IETA Business Hub Side Event Room

As a natural climate solution, trees are a proven, low-cost, effective, and scalable approach to mitigating the impacts of a changing climate. So, what are the current opportunities and barriers to restoring forest landscapes globally? How is the private sector making a business case to invest in forest restoration?

Moderated by Jeremy Manion, Lead of Forestry Carbon Markets at the Arbor Day Foundation, Jonathan Shopley will speak on a panel alongside representatives from IETA, Gold Standard, American Carbon Registry, Shell, Mars, Land Life and Forest Trends. The discussion will explore both market-based and non-market-based approaches to guiding investments into restoring forests.
