London Carbon Credit Company is currently in advanced negotiations with the world renowned Clinton Foundation to be sole UK provider of carbon credits produced from the Clinton Climate Initiative’s Carbon Capture and Forestry projects. Carbon is set to be the world’s biggest commodity market and, according to James Cameron of Climate Change Capital, could become the biggest market of them all.
Carbon credits are the financial instruments representing one metric ton of carbon pollution. When less CO2 or greenhouse gasses are emitted in the production of something, there arises the opportunity to create a carbon credit. Investors can use carbon credits to offset their own carbon footprint, or with the help of London Carbon Credit Company, get involved in carbon offsets – projects such as the Clinton Foundation’s Carbon Capture and Forestry projects.
Clinton Climate Initiative’s Carbon Capture and Storage projects harness the set of technologies which reduce CO2 emissions from power plants and industrial facilities. Carbon Capture and Storage involves, according to the Clinton Foundation, “the capture of CO2 emissions at their source, the transport of CO2 via pipelines or ships, and the long term storage of CO2 in geological reservoirs where, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), it can be safely immobilized and retained for millions of years.” The Clinton Foundation’s goal is to “create projects that help governments anticipate and resolve a complex host of critical issues” when it comes to carbon capture. Its Carbon Capture and Storage projects will connect “multiple capture facilities into a common pipeline and storage system sized to support long-term, commercial-scale use”. The Clinton Climate Initiative will “work in strategic locations with a concentration of emission sources from appropriate facilities and fuel types; where there is sufficient storage capacity; and where the government is committed both to CCS and our holistic approach.” Meanwhile, Clinton Climate Initiative’s Forestry programme assists projects that conserve or re-grow forests in Cambodia, Indonesia, Kenya, Tanzania and Guyana, facilitating forest carbon registration and sale. Both the Forestry and the Carbon Capture and Storage projects create excellent carbon credit opportunities.
As one would expect from an influential figure such as Bill Clinton, these are carbon credit and carbon offset projects which are at the vanguard of the environmental world. London Carbon Credit Company is excited to be in late-stage negotiations to become the only UK green investment brokerage and advisory firm to be able to offer these high profile ethical investments to its clients.
