What are carbon credits?

Carbon credits are tradable assets that represent 1 ton of carbon dioxide resulting from climate mitigation activities, that either avoid new carbon emissions or remove carbon from the atmosphere.

How do carbon credits work?

To generate a carbon credit, a company must register its climate mitigation project in a market mechanism platform. Once the project is registered and implemented it must be monitored and then verified by an independent third party to ensure that the associated carbon emission avoidance or carbon removal have occurred. Once verified the carbon credits are issued by the market mechanism platform and are ready to be traded. At this point an individual or company can purchase the carbon credits to offset their own emissions. The end goal of carbon credits is to reduce worldwide greenhouse gas emissions and slow down global warming.

What are environmental commodities?

Environmental commodities are financial instruments that represent the environmental benefits derived from activities that aim to reduce environmental impacts or promote sustainability. These commodities encompass a range of instruments, including carbon credits, emission allowances, renewable energy certificates, water conservation credits, and renewable natural gas certificates among others. They play a crucial role in the sustainable development agenda and contribute to the global efforts in combating climate change. 

How do I trade environmental commodities?

Depending on the specific environmental commodity and the market in which it is traded, they can either be traded over the counter in business-to-business basis or through exchange platforms in spot or future transactions. Our team has the expertise to assist you in accessing the markets and meeting your environmental commodities trading needs.
