Emission Credits

A smarter, simpler path to emissions compliance.


Environmental departments are typically thought of only as a cost center or a regulatory burden, as opposed to a potential source of revenue. By educating our clients on the true value of their environmental commodities and assisting them in managing their portfolio, we help create a cost-effective approach to environmental compliance while mitigating risk. And we make it as easy as possible.

    Key Points

  • Transactions are only the beginning, total project support

    We assist clients at all stages of compliance, from planning to permitting, procurement to ongoing portfolio management, through to the generation and monetization of credits upon shutdown or reduction. We work seamlessly with companies’ environmental and trading staff, the consultant(s), executive management, and legal counsel to support a project throughout its lifecycle, ensuring greater efficiency and success for our clients helping our clients realize better value at each stage. With expertise in trading in over 100 different emission markets, including VOC, NOx, SO2 emissions credits, we can help you meet all of your compliance needs.

  • Emissions dream team, in-house collective of compliance specialists

    Our staff is comprised of professionals with backgrounds in environmental economics, finance, engineering, energy trading, and environmental consulting, so we’re uniquely positioned to guide our clients through every facet of a project and identify innovative ways to meet compliance goals.
