CIG: JPMorgan is a carbon credit trader, and its old news!

The global investment bank that has seen the huge potential of this new sector.

Sept. 30, 2009 - PRLog -- For well over a year now, financial power house JPMorgan Chase and Co has quietly been pushing the margins of the carbon market - an extensive international experiment to reduce the greenhouse gases that cause global warming - by sponsoring the distribution of efficient cooking stoves in poorer countries. These newer stoves are fuel efficient and produce less carbon dioxide than traditional stoves, they generate so-called carbon credits that can be sold to businesses or individuals who want to offset their own emissions.

The industry is convoluted, controversial but primarily very profitable, CIG research has proved.

The long term plan sees, JPMorgan expanding its support for stoves from Uganda into Kenya, Ghana, Cambodia and on. Each stove is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions between 2 to 3 tons a year, with each ton generating conservatively a credit worth $10 or $15 a year, but with the current flurry of environmental activity ahead of the UN climate talks in Copenhagen in December, CIG believes the bank stands to make runaway profits, unthought-of of at the outset.

And JPMorgan isn't the only large global investment bank involved in carbon credit trading, Barclay's, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, and Merrill Lynch have all rapidly moved into carbon finance.

According to a carbon consulting firm known to CIG, the global carbon markets generated $59 billion in revenues in the first half of 2008 - almost as much as the markets did in all of 2007, Cig research shows that even with the global economic recession, growth for 2009 is staggering, which leaves the next year, after the Decembers climate talks, looking very lucrative indeed!
