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” <verra.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=65515b9ef00ff498311fbe3aa&id=d55625c69f&e=97ed2704ec>, 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 <verra.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=65515b9ef00ff498311fbe3aa&id=6450d74173&e=97ed2704ec> and welcome your feedback.
Several Verra team members will be participating in this year’s Innovate4Climate <verra.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=65515b9ef00ff498311fbe3aa&id=73b1cf79c5&e=97ed2704ec> conference and the European Climate Summit <verra.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=65515b9ef00ff498311fbe3aa&id=79f623b9a5&e=97ed2704ec> 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* <verra.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=65515b9ef00ff498311fbe3aa&id=0131d16e46&e=97ed2704ec> and look forward to connecting with you all virtually or in person.
