Making the priceless valuable comes at a price

Not so long ago, the voluntary carbon markets operated in an information void – where transparency was low and entry costs were high. Then, in 2007 Ecosystem Marketplace launched the first State of the Voluntary Carbon Markets report to shine a light into the black hole of information around the market for carbon offsets.

For over five years, Ecosystem Marketplace - a project of the 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Forest Trends - has delivered V-Carbon New Briefs to in-boxes around the world. Today, Ecosystem Marketplace continues in its efforts to make the priceless valuable, offering to the voluntary carbon marketplace a host of freely available services including reports, breaking news and commentary – all packaged for quick digestion in the V-Carbon News bi-weekly news brief.

V-Carbon editors scour the news from all parts of the world and in several languages to bring readers the most relevant market updates and insights in a concise, informed and often humorous medium. Since the publication’s launch, V-Carbon readership has grown to over 5,000 carbon market practitioners, investors, academics and policy leaders.

But this kind of priceless market insight costs both manpower and brainpower to bring to the market free of charge – the only freely available resource of its kind in voluntary carbon market. In order to continue providing this service, Ecosystem Marketplace is asking for readers’ voluntary support to continue this service.

For a voluntary donation of $150/year, readers can continue to benefit from Ecosystem Marketplace’s informed briefings and Ecosystem Marketplace can in turn expand the newsletter’s offerings to conduct a broader survey of market information, including voluntary carbon price discovery and special reports.
