Navigating the Carbon Market

TDi Sustainability offers comprehensive expertise in the regulatory compliance and voluntary carbon markets to help companies navigate the complexities of this rapidly evolving sector.

Transparent and Effective Offsetting: TDi remains at the forefront of the rapid growth in corporate engagement with offsetting which has accelerated the voluntary carbon markets sector, enabling organisations to demonstrate a representative reduction in their emissions, where actual emissions reductions may remain impractical. 

Data and Analytics: We help companies gain access to effective data and analytics, so crucial to measure and scale carbon markets effectively, as well as to navigate the increase in legislation, governance and regulations that are beginning to shape the sector.

Community Engagement Strategies: Our expertise in human rights strategies and Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) can help ensure that carbon trading and offsetting activities contribute positively to local and indigenous communities on the ground, at the heart of carbon management projects. 

Finance and Investment: Working closely with the investment and finance industries, TDi can help organisations gain the data and strategy planning needed to ensure transparency, credibility and long-term sustainability of new carbon market investments.

Current Trends in the Carbon Markets

Carbon offsetting by investing in projects that reduce, avoid, or remove greenhouse gas emissions elsewhere has become increasingly nuanced as the carbon markets sector evolves, with a rising demand to prove transparency and effectiveness, as well as to ensure local communities benefit from carbon trading activities affecting their lands.

Carbon Credits

Carbon Credits

As sustainability disclosure standards become more stringent, companies and investors are now required to ensure their carbon credits are verifiable and contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emission reductions.



Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) in developing countries, and promoting forest conservation, sustainable management and enhancement of forest carbon stocks.

Indigenous Peoples' Rights

FPIC (Free, Prior and Informed Consent)

Applying the principle of FPIC, acknowledging the rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities to give or withhold consent for projects affecting their lands.

Emissions Reduction

Demonstrating emissions reduction and ensuring compliance with evolving sustainability regulations. This includes aligning carbon trading activities with broader sustainability objectives.
