24 February 2012 | Ecosystem Marketplace is pleased to announce an open call for organizations to contribute data to the State of the Forest Carbon Markets and State of the Voluntary Carbon Markets 2012 reports.
Access this year’s survey HERE. Forest carbon project developers that provide project-level information by March 10th – whether or not you have transacted credits yet – can choose to have their project profiled as the Forest Carbon Portal’s Featured Project. Once you create a login, you can return to and update your response until you’re ready to submit!
If your organization has developed forest carbon projects in either voluntary or compliance markets, we invite you to describe your project and any 2011 transactions. If you sold forest carbon offsets to voluntary buyers in 2011 but are not a project developer, we also welcome your response in the “2011 Transactions” survey section.
Forest project developers can choose their preferred level of confidentiality – from completely open (including transaction prices and volumes) to completely confidential. Individual names and contact information will not be published or given out to third parties without prior permission.
ABOUT THE REPORTS: In 2011, Ecosystem Marketplace published the second edition of the State of the Forest Carbon Markets report, offering up the first deep insights and fundamental market data for this rapidly growing and historically significant sector. This report, and the State of the Voluntary Carbon Markets reports, have been quickly adopted as carbon market benchmarks and are cited throughout the year by major news outlets, private- and public-sector decision makers, and other market players and observers.
Access the surveys HERE. We appreciate your assistance and look forward to working with you.
If you have any queries about confidentiality, content, or forest carbon report sponsorship contact Molly Peters-Stanley (202-298-3005).
