Once the domain of coffee and pineapples, the notion of fair trade certification is making its way to the voluntary carbon trading industry. Dave Rochlin , former chief operating officer of fair trade certifier Transfair USA, has cofounded a company, ClimatePath , that will certify and bring more transparency to carbon projects.
