into carbon markets

We believe that carbon markets will strengthen and grow for everyone involved with greater credibility and transparency delivered through better access to market information.

By providing better information about supply, demand, and price variability of Gold Standard credits, we hope to support prospective buyers in accessing the pricing data they need to inform their purchasing decisions, provide project developers with confidence in the prices they can expect, and support sellers of credits in their marketing efforts. This 'Climate Finance Transparency Initiative' is part of our broader demand building strategy to eliminate barriers and build confidence in the market and will provide greater access to information to support market growth.
