Ecosystem Marketplace, and its Visionary Partners, Strategic Supporters, and Global Carbon Survey Respondents, convened for a complimentary EM Insights Event to release the most up-to-date carbon offsets prices and insights with the State of the Voluntary Carbon Markets 2021 first installment + new features in the EM Data Intelligence & Analytics Dashboard.

Ecosystem Marketplace (EM) first started reporting on the voluntary markets for carbon offsets, otherwise known as carbon credits, in 2005 and has since become a leading source of information on environmental finance, markets, and payments for ecosystem services. The insights and analysis of carbon offsets prices and corporate claims (e.g., net zero, carbon neutrality) are based upon the trades, deliveries, expertise, and sentiments reported by a growing global network (known as EM Respondents) of hundreds of active and prospective market participants that are originating and/or trading carbon credits – including project developers, investors, intermediaries.
