IN DISCUSSION: Voluntary Contributions or Crowd-Funding for Waste Projects?

Methane abatement can help to achieve the climate goals of the Paris Agreement and has positive near-term effects. Measures for mitigation by waste management are state-of-the-art and readily implementable. Yet, access to funding remains an issue. Hugh Salway, Head of Environmental Markets, joins a discussion on what are the possibilities and/or barriers of using voluntary compensations or crowd-funding to help finance methane mitigation or waste projects.
