Build your own diverse projects supply
Choose from a range of nature-based and engineered projects that reduce and remove carbon and protect biodiversity. Engage in short or long-term contracts e.g forwards or offtake agreements with projects in alignment with net-zero timelines, impact goals, and financial strategy.
Carbon forwards or prepayment agreements involve a buyer providing upfront funding to a carbon project in exchange for future carbon credits. In return, the project commits to delivering a certain quantity of carbon credits to the buyer once they are generated in the future. Typically the buyer secures more attractive pricing on these credits due to the additional risk they take on. These agreements help projects secure financing and provide the buyer with reliable carbon credits for their environmental commitments.
Carbon offtake agreements are contracts where a buyer commits to purchasing carbon credits from a project over a period of time, with payment made as and when the credits are issued. The agreement benefits both parties involved. The project generating the credits receives a guaranteed revenue stream, which helps fund their operations, expand their activities, or attract further investment. The buyer gains access to verified carbon credits that can be used to compensate for their emissions, demonstrate environmental responsibility, or achieve sustainability targets.
