Demand - Drivers, Limitations, and Opportunities

Market Demand Driver: Corporate Commitments to Achieving Net-Zero Emissions and Sustainability Goals

There has been a significant surge in corporate commitments to achieving net-zero emissions and sustainability goals, reflecting a growing recognition among businesses of their role in addressing climate change and contributing to environmental sustainability. An increasing alliance of nations, businesses, and other entities are committing to achieving net-zero emissions. Over 140 countries, including China, the U.S., India, and the European Union, have established net-zero targets, accounting for approximately 88% of global emissions. Additionally, more than 9,000 companies, over 1,000 cities, more than 1,000 educational institutions, and over 600 financial institutions have joined the race to zero initiative, vowing to implement decisive and prompt measures to cut global emissions in half by the year 2030.

In November 2022, PwC India committed to taking decisive action toward environmental sustainability and achieving net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while setting science-based targets. Initiatives are currently in progress to reduce carbon emissions from operational processes and decouple business expansion from emissions. Additionally, Ford Motor Company has pledged to achieve carbon neutrality globally by 2050, as outlined in its 21st annual Sustainability Report. The commitment aligns with the Paris Climate Agreement and involves collaborating with Uber in June 2023 in California to strengthen vehicle greenhouse gas standards. Ford intends to focus on three key areas responsible for approximately 95% of its CO2 emissions, namely, vehicle usage, supply chain, and company facilities. This heightened interest in carbon offsetting initiatives leads to the development of more robust and sustainable market for carbon credits, providing opportunities for investments in projects related to agriculture, forestry, and land use that contribute to carbon sequestration and emission reduction.

Market Challenge: Risk of Greenwashing

Carbon offset programs present a significant issue when relied upon without accompanying emissions reduction efforts, hindering progress toward net-zero targets. Criticisms from international non-governmental organizations such as Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, and World Wildlife Fund-U.K. highlight concerns about these programs fostering a culture of climate pollution.

Carbon offsetting can also become a form of greenwashing when companies prioritize it over in-house emissions reduction efforts, leading to only partial offsetting and temporary solutions. Double-counting carbon credits and investing in projects with no real additional emissions reductions also contribute to greenwashing practices, deceiving the public about companies' true commitment to reducing carbon emissions. To address the challenges associated with carbon offset programs, various steps have been taken to improve transparency, accountability, and effectiveness. Governments and regulatory bodies have implemented stricter standards and verification processes to ensure that offset projects meet rigorous criteria and deliver real emissions reductions.

Market Opportunity: Increase in Adoption of Agroforestry and Sustainable Farming Practices

The agricultural sector plays a pivotal role in carbon trading due to its dual capacity to emit and sequester carbon. Activities such as tilling, fertilizer application, and livestock farming emit greenhouse gases, while practices such as agroforestry, conservation tillage, and soil carbon sequestration remove carbon from the atmosphere, storing it in the soil. Carbon trading in agriculture presents a pathway to incentivize farmers toward eco-friendly practices, mitigating climate change effects. By engaging in carbon offset projects, farmers can generate additional income by selling carbon credits. Embracing carbon abatement techniques aids in soil carbon sequestration, contributing to greenhouse gas reduction and climate change mitigation. This framework not only financially motivates farmers but also fosters the adoption of sustainable land-use practices, conserving natural resources and minimizing environmental impacts.

Within the carbon credit market for agriculture, forestry, and land use, individual farmers may encounter challenges navigating the complexities of selling carbon credits. Yet, through the coordination of collectives such as Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs) and cooperatives, participation in carbon trading becomes more accessible. These entities play a crucial role in mobilizing farmers, promoting the adoption of carbon abatement practices, and efficiently managing the sale of accumulated carbon credits.
