The Guardian: “Blue carbon: the hidden CO2 sink that pioneers say could save the planet”

This piece in The Guardian by Karen McVeigh examines the potential of blue carbon projects for sequestration. The article discusses the benefits of blue carbon and how such projects are beginning to be financed through carbon credits.

The article references Verra’s role in administering the world’s leading carbon credit standard, and focuses on Conservation International’s Cispatá project, the first blue carbon project to be verified by Verra.
