Live Event: 10 March 4:00-6:00 p.m. at Hotel Nikko San Francisco

Carbon Removal, Markets and Offsets: Net Zero Strategy or Greenwashing?

In 2021, we saw over $1.6 billion invested in start-ups and scale-ups dedicated to carbon offsets. But that doesn’t mean the market isn’t plagued with questions of accountability, validation and transparency that some say equate to greenwashing. By contrast, many corporates are banking on offsets to achieve their sustainability goals with some claiming to have already arrived at net zero.

Join us  on 10 March from 4:00 -6:00 pm at Hotel Nikko in San Francisco as we assess the carbon removal and offset market. In addition to expert insight, we’ll introduce you to the innovators solving critical problems and showcase the  innovations determined to transform the path we take to a net-zero future.

Everyone who attends this event should be vaccinated.  Mask wearing is optional.
