And it presents ENDS' pick of the top 30 quality offset providers world-wide.
Sample ENDS Carbon Offsets 2009
ENDS Carbon Offsets 2009 is a key source on current trends in the voluntary carbon market, including unique intelligence on attitudes and plans of carbon offset buying organisations.
With the voluntary carbon market continuing its rapid evolution, the report provides strategic market intelligence for market participants, shedding independent light on the state of the voluntary carbon market and key future trends for prospective and actual buyers of carbon offsets, offset providers, consultants and policy makers.
The report's centrepiece is the ENDS carbon offsetting survey 2009. This is one of the first surveys to provide a purchaser perspective and draws together the views of 125 participants from around the world to bring some very clear messages for offset buyers, providers and policy makers.
The survey concludes that the voluntary carbon market's Wild West phase is at an end. Carbon offset purchasers are demanding transparency and a raft of safeguards to ensure that emission reductions are real, additional, verified, permanent and unique. At the same time the carbon offset industry is rapidly raising its game to meet these demands.
The survey is accompanied by feature articles analysing the current state of the voluntary carbon market and identifying key trends in the year ahead. Aimed at offset purchasers and providers alike, these articles complement the survey findings and draw on ENDS' comprehensive database of carbon offset providers worldwide to give one of the clearest pictures available of current and future top issues for the sector.
