Finance for Biodiversity (F4B) publishes new governance model for voluntary carbon markets

Finance for Biodiversity (F4B) has published a new governance model for the voluntary carbon markets.

The proposals encourage the adoption of three key governance principles:

  • Whole-system governance which connects the carbon value chain at every level
  • Complete transparency to ensure the integrity of projects, transactions and market outcomes
  • The promotion of inclusive participation, especially for Indigenous People

F4B also argues that nature markets require stronger and more innovative governance than typical financial markets.
