Carbon markets can accelerate action to combat climate change. Carbon credits incentivize investment in projects that remove, reduce or avoid emissions (e.g., reforestation and direct air capture and storage projects), and trade in both the primary and secondary markets. Buyers and sellers of carbon credits face numerous risks due to the rapid development of the carbon markets, differing standards and the varied nature of projects.
