Highlight of this year's Pavilion: Exhibitors are presenting current studies and their projects
This year, ten service providers and organisations working on the development and linking of international carbon markets are being presented at the German Federal Environment Ministry’s German Pavilion; adelphi is one of them. On behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), adelphi has developed the concept for the Pavilion and has been providing organisational and communications support.
From adelphi, Kristian Wilkening will be presenting an "Updated Analysis of the German Market for Voluntary Greenhouse Gas Offsetting" on Tuesday, 26 May 2015 at 3:00 pm. What does the market look like today, and just how sustainable is it? Are market players facing the same challenges as those in the compliance market? And how great is the risk of fluctuating product quality in a market with no central recognition procedures or uniform standards? These were the questions analysed by adelphi and sustainable in a study for the German Emissions Trading Authority (DEHSt), a part of the German Federal Environment Agency.
