An electronic bourse for voluntary carbon credits will list Gold Standard VERs.
London-based Carbon Trade Exchange (CTX) said in a joint statement it had signed an agreement with Gold Standard to sell its verified emissions reductions (VERs).
“In order for the voluntary market to mature, it needs greater price transparency, customer choice and liquidity,” said Gold Standard CEO Adrian Rimmer.
“Recognising our influential role in the voluntary carbon market, we are making Carbon Trade Exchange’s robust platform available to our stakeholders because it will drive the growth that the market needs,” he said.
Gold Standard said last month its credits would also be carried by global financial information provider Markit’s environmental registry, which has partnered with CTX.
CTX, launched in June of this year, also said it is part of the British government’s trade delegation at UN climate talks in cancun mexico this month.
