FORT WORTH, Texas—Relying solely on carbon offsets to hit net-zero targets isn’t going to cut it anymore, according to energy investors.

With a swelling number of corporations purchasing carbon offsets as a main source of reducing their carbon footprint, EIV Capital partner David Finan said a rising offset demand is coinciding with higher amount of capital that needs to be allocated to the business.

“If you think about the number of companies that are in the S&P 500 that have signed on for a net-zero commitment by 2040, that's a tenfold increase in the amount of offsets that are needed from today to 2040,” Finan shared at Hart Energy’s Carbon Management Conference on May 16.
