Climate change is an existential threat to life as we know it. The global economy must decarbonize rapidly if we hope to limit warming to a level to which humanity can adapt.
Change Finance is proud to be a part of the solution. Our Certified Carbon Neutral Fund and SMA Products are the first of their kind and allow investors to simultaneously accomplish two previously contradictory goals: seek wealth creation through the capital markets and sequester the greenhouse gases whose accumulation in our atmosphere threatens our future prosperity.
The Voluntary Carbon Market
As a financial company, the vast majority of the carbon emissions associated with Change Finance reside in our investment portfolios. Every company we invest in has a carbon footprint. Consequently, we own a small portion of each company’s greenhouse gas emissions. Since we have limited control over the emissions of large multinational companies, we must sequester the emissions for which we are responsible if we are to achieve our goal of carbon neutrality. We can accomplish this through participating in the nascent and growing voluntary carbon market, a mechanism that allows us to remove carbon from the atmosphere by purchasing certified carbon credits.
