Description

Using forests to offset a company’s carbon emissions has been dismissed as “greenwashing.” But Diego Saez Gil argues that a verifiable and transparent global market in carbon credits is a vital tool to mitigate climate change. In part 2 of their discussion, he joins Azeem Azhar to explore how his company, Pachama, uses technology to connect farmers and ecologists with climate-conscious corporations in an effort to evolve the global carbon marketplace.


They also discuss:



  • Why companies need offsets to achieve their climate goals.

  • Why carbon offsets should be used only after emission-reducing changes have been maximized.

  • How properly calibrated carbon pricing can incentivize climate-conscious economic activity.
