Community Collaborative

The 1t.org US Community Collaborative serves as a dedicated gathering hub for cross-sectoral leaders committed to the ambitious goal of conserving, restoring, and growing one trillion trees by 2030. We are united by a deep understanding that forests are not just trees; they are ecosystems that play a vital role for people, biodiversity, and the planet.


Webinar: A Conversation on Voluntary Carbon Markets
Thursday, June 20, 2024, 1:00-2:00 P.M. ET

2024 is proving to be a pivotal year for voluntary carbon markets (VCMs), marked by significant advancements and innovations. Updated methodologies, the maturation of ratings agencies, critical guidance from consortiums like VCMI and ICVCM, and emerging innovative buyers clubs have all contributed to increased confidence in high-integrity credits. Additionally, the White House has recently released a new set of principles for Voluntary Carbon Markets.

Join Us To:

  • Understand the latest methodologies and guidance shaping the integrity of carbon markets.
  • Learn how public, private, and nonprofit sectors are collaborating to support high-functioning VCMs.
  • Gain insights into the new principles for responsible participation in VCMs.
