Firm recognized as Industry Leader for fourth consecutive year

Element Markets, LLC, a Houston-based biomethane developer and leading supplier of environmental credits, has been recognized as the top trading company in several categories of the survey administered by Environmental Finance and Carbon Finance – two of the leading global publications covering environmental markets, for its performance in the US emissions, greenhouse gas, and renewable energy credit markets in 2011.

The company was recognized in the following categories:

  • Best Trading Company North American Greenhouse Gas Markets
  • Best Trading Company in SO2 Emissions Credits
  • Runner-up for Best Trading Company in North American Renewable Energy Credits
  • Runner-up for Best North American Greenhouse Offset Originator

During October and November, more than 1,000 votes were received in the market survey from readers of the two publications, and from others active in environmental trading and finance. The results are to be published in the December 2011-January 2012 issues of Environmental Finance and Carbon Finance. The survey – the most closely watched poll of sentiment across carbon, renewable energy, weather risk and US emissions markets – reveals those firms that their clients, peers and competitors have judged to have provided the best service over the previous twelve months.

“2011 was a strong year for Element Markets as we expanded our marketing business to serve our growing client base,” said Angela Schwarz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Element Markets. “The company is poised for continued growth in support of our clients under California’s AB32 Program, the Cross States Air Pollution Rule, and further expansion in the Renewable Energy and Transportation Credits.”
