Today's Challenge

To limit global temperatures to 1.5°C, in line with the Paris Agreement, the world needs to avoid, reduce, and remove as many greenhouse gas emissions as possible as quickly as it can.


As companies continue to set ambitious climate pledges to limit the worst impacts of the climate crisis, the global voluntary carbon market will play a critical role in the transition to a net zero economy.


Carbon credits will direct large-scale investment needed to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 by funding carbon reduction and removal projects.


However, today’s voluntary carbon market is not equipped to keep pace with the rapidly growing demand for carbon credits.


Currently, the voluntary carbon market relies on bilateral trading, which can be slow, opaque, and risky, reducing trust in the market.


The instant, secure, and traceable settlement of carbon credit transactions via a secure, distribution network is a linchpin in scaling the voluntary carbon market.


Our Solution 

Carbonplace is committed to the transition to a net-zero economy.  That’s why our mission is to open the voluntary carbon market to the world

By enabling secure and efficient transactions, Carbonplace will instil the confidence needed for the market to scale and deliver urgently needed large-scale investment in climate action – from reforestation initiatives to innovation in carbon capture technologies.

Our Driving Principles

Carbonplace will become the nexus of the marketplaces, exchanges, and registries that make up the voluntary carbon market, connecting millions of buyers and sellers to certified carbon credits, with confidence.
Carbonplace will offer reliable records of ownership for carbon credits, enabling owners to demonstrate possession to the market, reducing risks of double counting, and simplifying reporting.
Carbonplace will instil trust in the market. With robust KYC/AML (Know Your Customer and Anti-Money-Laundering) verification, buyers and sellers can rely on the banks they already trust for settlement purposes.
