Environmental Registry

An essential tool for managing global carbon, water and biodiversity credits

The Environmental Registry helps participants track environmental projects and issue, transact and retire serialized credits. The Registry provides infrastructure that increases transparency, efficiency and scalability within global environmental markets.

This is the only registry that allows account holders to manage all of their global carbon, water and biodiversity credits in a centralized, financial markets-based registry system. It provides end-to-end management of environmental portfolios and full support for existing and emerging environmental programs and markets.

The Registry supports both project developers looking to list credits and potential buyers sourcing projects. It enables users to manage environmental projects, credit issuances, transfers and retirements. We also provide publicly viewable documentation and holdings, and all project and listing documentations are reviewed to ensure compliance with relevant environmental market standards.

Request for Information (RFI) – Our RFI platform is an anonymous online platform for OTC environmental markets, displaying credits available for sale with indicative quantities and prices. These credits are searchable and viewable by registered buyers, who can send expressions of interest. Additionally, buyers may also enter specific criteria of credits that they are wishing to purchase. Introduction through the platform enables the parties to discuss terms of a potential bilateral transaction.

Pending Issuance Unit (PIU) – The Registry provides the infrastructure to enable you to track your forward sales of anticipated environmental credits. Each PIU represents an anticipated environmental credit to be delivered based on a specified standard-compliant project validation report. These anticipated units can be listed, serialized, and held and tracked.

Key benefits:

  • Transparency and efficiency – Use a real-time online portal for credit tracking and reporting
  • Trust and confidence – Rely on regulator-approved capability, with best-in-class security and accountability fostered through unique serial numbers
  • Flexibility and scalability – Adapt to new rules to accommodate changing marketplace and business requirements, and access a configurable and expandable platform to facilitate program growth
  • Maximum participation – Link with internal and external auction and trading platforms, as well as counterparties for OTC transactions
