Carbon exchange CIX launches nature-based contract for forest conservation

Singapore-based carbon exchange Climate Impact X (CIX) announced on 23 March 2023 the launch of a nature-based standardised (NBS) contract, which will provide buyers with credits and proceeds that support forest conservation efforts. The CIX Nature X contract will trade under the code ‘CNX’ on its spot trading platform, with eligible projects including rainforests and biodiversity reserves in Asia, Africa, and South America.

Each lot of CNX represents 1,000 carbon credits, and each credit represents one tonne of reduced or avoided carbon dioxide from verified projects. CIX is a joint venture between banks DBS and Standard Chartered, Singapore Exchange, and Temasek Holdings. The exchange considers project size, recognition by market participants and rating agencies, and the volume of issued and unretired credits when selecting projects for contractual delivery.
