Short Informative Videos to Serve as a Resource for Current and Prospective Partners
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cool Effect, a Bay Area based nonprofit dedicated to supporting voluntary carbon projects around the globe, is releasing its first-ever video series to kick off Earth Month, dedicated to providing education for those interested in learning about tools for climate action. The short-form animated videos are a resource to help partners understand and explain carbon credits and the carbon market to their communities. The first video in this series, “What is a High-Quality Carbon Offset?,” is available today and makes the aspects of high quality carbon offsets easy to understand.
The market for carbon credits is projected to be worth upward of $50 billion in 2030 as more businesses turn to the voluntary carbon market as a tool for meeting ambitious climate commitments and supporting decarbonization efforts.
“The carbon market as a whole, and offsets’ place in it, can often feel overwhelming and confusing. With continued growth and investment into the voluntary carbon market, it’s important to understand where your money is going and how carbon projects are making a verifiable impact for the planet and its people,” said Jodi Manning, VP, Director of Marketing and Partnerships at Cool Effect. “We’re committed to helping our partners navigate the market, and our objective with this video series is to remove the mystery, cut down on complicated jargon, and make the world of high-quality carbon offsets easier to understand.”
Other videos in the series will be released weekly and will cover topics including:
- Types of carbon projects
- How do I get started with carbon offsetting?
- Why are carbon prices inconsistent?
- The do’s and don’ts of carbon offsetting
“What our climate needs right now is urgency. The voluntary carbon market provides an efficient mechanism to direct funds toward communities most impacted by climate change in the global south, and can help us accelerate the path toward climate change mitigation,” said Dee Lawrence, Co-Founder and Director of Cool Effect. “Over the past two decades, I’ve seen first-hand how truly transformational carbon finance can be for both the environment and communities in need, and we’re committed to sharing that knowledge with businesses and corporations who can support and extend that positive impact.”
