Drastically more funding is needed to scale tropical forest conservation if we are to meet global climate goals. The voluntary carbon market can help catalyze finance for tropical forest conservation.
The Tropical Forest Credit Integrity (TFCI) Guide is helping credit buyers navigate the voluntary carbon market through providing clarity on what high-quality tropical forest carbon credits look like. The TFCI is also pivotal to scaling tropical forest conservation and ensuring the full and effective participation of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities in these efforts.
In this session, panelists will provide an overview of the Tropical Forest Credit Integrity (TFCI) guide, explain how the guide complements other emerging initiatives, and share perspectives on the role that the TFCI Guide can play in the broader carbon market landscape and how companies can use this resource to help build their portfolios while guidance is still being developed by initiatives like the IC-VCM, SBTi, and others.
