About the VCMA

The Voluntary Carbon Markets Association (VCMA) promotes and supports voluntary action on climate change through a vibrant and credible carbon market. We are an independent not-for-profit organisation established in 2008.

The VCMA represents all aspects of the voluntary market including businesses, local governments and government agencies taking action on climate change by purchasing carbon abatement. We also represent providers of carbon accounting, renewable energy, energy efficiency, and plantation offset services, and the educational and training organisations developing the skilled workforce essential to the future growth of the market.

We are working to ensure the voluntary market is credible and accountable so that investments made in a low carbon future achieve just that. Our work includes research and advocacy on the latest issues that affect our members.
