Carbon Procurement

Procurement of carbon credits to comply with net zero carbon or other sustainability goals

What are carbon procurements?

Under our carbon procurement mandates, we source and develop carbon assets for clients.

Through these mandates, South Pole’s clients can secure access to high quality carbon credits which match their specific needs and sustainability goals. This gives our clients an edge when the price of credits is high or specific types of credits are not available. 

We work with reputable and committed project partners on the ground and ensure all carbon emissions reductions are verified and validated by independent third parties.

Why carbon procurement?

Shrinking supply and increasing demand

The long-term demand for carbon credits - particularly carbon removal credits - is increasing. Rising demand is being driven by more companies embarking on a net zero journey and new regulation from governments.

At the same time, the supply of high-integrity carbon assets is drying up.

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 procure carbon assets already today and thereby hedge against potential future price changes.

How South Pole's Carbon Investment contribute to the net zero transformation.
