1 March 2011 | Ecosystem Marketplace’s Carbon Program is wrapping up its collection process for this year’s State of the Voluntary Carbon Markets and Forest Carbon Markets reports – but not without one final call for responses.
If you were engaged in developing or selling carbon offsets to voluntary buyers in 2010, this week is your last chance to contribute to the most widely-read, referenced and comprehensive market analysis of its kind in the voluntary carbon market. Respond to the survey by March 4th, 2011, or contact us to request an extension.
What’s in it for you? Respondents that provide us with price or volume data from 2010 will receive a free electronic copy of the report upon its publication. You can also opt to be listed in the report directory, as well as Ecosystem Marketplace’s and Bloomberg New Energy Finance’s online directories/catalogs of offset providers.
Why is your response so important to us? The more data we collect on offset prices, volumes, project types, locations and other variables, the more accurate our final analysis will be – analysis that in turn affects business decisions in the global voluntary carbon markets throughout the year.
How can you feel confident that your data is safe? All price and volume data is aggregated in the report under variables like “global market share by project type / location / standard / etc.” Prices are presented as a volume-weighted average, and we never report findings for which we have fewer than three data points. If you have questions about confidentiality, contact us – we’re happy to walk you through our methodology.
How can your organization take a bigger role in the report process? If your organization or company wants to spread the word about its presence in the voluntary carbon markets, report sponsorship is a great platform for reaching international readers/buyers. Benefits range from prominent report logos to a seat on the report launch panel.
Of course, if report sponsorship is not an option for your organization, consider helping us continue to provide free and regular market reporting via products like this news brief – become a Supporting Subscriber. For a suggested donation of US$150/year, this sponsor type is listed in this bi-weekly news brief with a link to their website for one year from the date of donation. That’s US$6.25 per issue to reach out to inboxes worldwide. Help keep V-Carbon free – donate here.
