Voluntary carbon credits are a potentially useful tool in the green energy transition. But the lack of harmonized standards adds to risks such as price volatility as do tricky legal and regulatory questions as to their status, and how they may be used.

Partners Brett Hillis and Jennifer Smokelin will provide an overview and discuss ways to mitigate key legal, regulatory and commercial risks in voluntary carbon market trading in the EU, UK and US, including:
