The alliance, driven by TPG Rise-backed Rubicon Carbon, intends to revolutionise the voluntary carbon market (VCM) by introducing large-scale nature-based carbon offset initiatives that yield impactful results for the environment.
Rubicon Carbon, with support from TPG Rise, specialises in aiding major corporations to meet their decarbonisation targets through curated carbon credit portfolios. Freepoint Commodities, renowned globally as a commodities merchant, extends its market solutions to VCM players, including investment in premium carbon projects. Imperative Global, with its proficiency in carbon credit project development and carbon markets, focuses on enhancing quality and execution.
One of the core aspirations of this partnership is to generate more than 100 million high-quality carbon credits, certified by Verra and Gold Standard, not only mitigating carbon emissions but also advancing broader sustainability objectives. This initiative aligns perfectly with the surging demand for carbon offsets, which experts predict will ascend from $2 billion in 2022 to a staggering $250 billion by 2050. Through this partnership, they aim to bridge the gap between the demand for dependable offsets and the imperative for authentic, impactful, nature-based carbon offset ventures.
Central to the collaboration is to resolve a persistent concern: the question of quality in the carbon offset market. Rubicon Carbon's emphasis on integrity, demonstrated by partnering with Imperative Global, aims to elevate market standards. Chris Brown, Head of Rubicon Carbon Capital, reiterated the intent to drive ‘integrity and quality’ within the VCM.
Freepoint Commodities echoes this sentiment, striving to bolster its voluntary carbon business by investing in projects of high integrity. Its support for Imperative Global as a market leader underscores its commitment to expanding offerings while adhering to superior standards.
