With global leaders looking to reduce the world’s carbon footprint, “building enough capacity will take decades.
That’s one reason why voluntary carbon credit markets are expected to play an increasingly key role to help offset the impact of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions,” says Base Carbon Inc. (NEO BCBN) (OTCQX: BCBNF). “One credit off sets one tonne of carbon dioxide, or an equivalent amount of methane or other GHGs.
A 2021 study by Trove Research concluded that voluntary credits will be an essential lever for corporations to offset emissions. The study forecasts that the cost per credit could exceed US$50 by 2040 due to rising demand, up from a range of US$5 to US$20 today.”
In addition to Base Carbon Inc., other companies and ETFs with exposure to carbon credits, include Carbon Streaming Corp. (OTC: OFSTF) (NEO: NETZ), Brookfield Renewable Partners LP (NYSE: BEP) (TSX: BEP), KraneShares Global Carbon Strategy ETF (NYSE: KRBN), and Horizons Carbon Credits ETF (TSX: CARB). Helping, hundreds of companies are already committed to net-zero carbon emissions, including Alphabet Inc., Disney, Unilever, Siemens AG, Ford, American Airlines, Illumina Inc., CVS Health, Moody’s Corp., and Trane Technologies to name a few.
