Carbon Offsets with Peter Gannon
It's a complex story but Peter Gannon, ecologist and environmental consultant, is the man who understands all the layers, relationships, acts, processes and challenges that are part of the biodiversity and carbon offset space.
Once you've digested the webinar, delve further with the links below. There's plenty of room for improvement in the way these schemes are conducted, so let's make it a part of the conversation as we work to secure a better future for nature - and ourselves.
As promised, Peter has provided us with more links for those who would like to enquire further:
