As a carbon removal standard, registry and marketplace, Puro.earth is committed to the integrity and transparency of the carbon markets. Today we are proud to announce a new structure in our governance, an external Advisory Board.
The Advisory Board brings together a notable and diverse group of scientific and sustainability experts, all united by their shared passion and commitment for addressing the climate crisis and scaling the carbon markets. The nominated members bring complementary experience and viewpoints on carbon removal and will provide critical insights and governance to continue to develop Puro.earth’s carbon crediting principles in 2022 and beyond.
At the core of the Board’s mandate is ensuring high credit-level integrity and robust principles for a science-based high-quality carbon removal standard. The Board of Directors will continue to oversee the overall business and carbon trading aspects of the marketplace.
“In order to build a global carbon removal market, further strengthening its integrity and robustness will be crucial. The new advisory board will continue to build quality and trust in Puro.earth verification standards,” said Fredrik Ekström, President of Nasdaq Stockholm and Chairman of Puro.earth.
“I am convinced that with this Board structure we can continue to efficiently manage verification rules for recently discovered carbon removal methods. Well-crafted voluntary standards can reduce barriers to investment in innovative projects and increase climate action in the 2020’s”, continued Marianne Tikkanen, Head of Supply at Puro.earth.
