Our carbon investments pool financial resources from companies and other investors to invest in carbon assets. They generate returns for investors in the form of carbon credits from projects. By pooling carbon investments, investors can mitigate investment risk.
As more and more companies embark on a net zero carbon path or are subject to carbon regulations, the demand for carbon assets - particularly carbon removal credits - is skyrocketing.
At the same time, the carbon asset supply, particularly for removals, is drying up. Project developers are requesting advance payments to give carbon asset rights to buyers.
With high demand and low supply, companies risk having to pay high carbon prices to meet regulatory requirements or to meet their net zero commitments in 10-20 years.
Therefore, it is a sound strategy to invest in carbon assets already today and thereby hedge against potential future price changes.
