ClimeCo’s roots are in the carbon market, developing and commercializing projects to generate high-quality global carbon offsets.
Voluntary Carbon Market
Beginning with the development of N2O abatement projects in 2010 and acquiring several composting projects, ClimeCo now reduces millions of tonnes of CO2e emissions annually. We actively invest in various global voluntary projects and maintain a diverse portfolio of offsets to meet our customers’ volume, project, and geographical diversification needs. A dedicated team and numerous global partners make ClimeCo a trusted source for voluntary carbon offsets and renewable energy commodities.
Regulated Carbon Market
ClimeCo actively participates in regulated markets across North America, from cap-and-trade to hybrid market designs. Our mission remains the same throughout these variable and complex programs: to help clients minimize their compliance obligations and capitalize on unique market opportunities where available. ClimeCo is an expert in the following programs:
- The Western Climate Initiative (WCI) joint cap-and-trade program in California and Quebec
- Alberta’s Technology Innovation and Emission Reduction (TIER) regulation
- Carbon pricing jurisdictions across Canada, such as the Federal OBPS, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan
- The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI)
