Voluntary Carbon Market

The voluntary carbon marketplace encompasses all transactions of carbon offsets that are not purchased with the intention to surrender into a regulated carbon market.

It does include certificates (offsets) that are purchased with the intent to retire and meet carbon neutral or other environmental claims and also to re-sell. Participating entities are not obliged to meet any targets related to their emissions, they act on a voluntary basis.
