Welcome to Verra’s May Newsletter!
We are proud to share that the Natural Climate Solutions Alliance (NCSA) has designated six Verra projects as “Lighthouses”, so named because they “shine a light” on the potential of investments in nature.
Also, we recently launched a Public Consultation on Projected Carbon Units and welcome your feedback.
Several Verra team members will be participating in this year’s Innovate4Climate conference and the European Climate Summit later this month. Both events bring together key market stakeholders and experts in climate finance, climate investment, and climate markets. Several Verra staff members will be attending and speaking and look forward to connecting with you all virtually or in person.
