Carbon credits and compliance: AB 1305 and beyond

California Assembly Bill 1305—also known as the Voluntary Carbon Market Disclosures Business Regulation Act (VCMDA)—is a landmark law that requires all companies operating in California to disclose the details of carbon credits they purchase. It also mandates disclosures on the details behind corporate climate claims such as net zero or carbon neutral.

In this webinar, our policy and legal experts discussed topics including how AB 1305 relates to other global regulations, and strategies for compliance.

We covered:

  • Compliance strategies and risk mitigation for carbon credit purchases.
  • Insights into how AB 1305 interacts with other global regulations.
  • Live questions during the audience Q&A.
