SCB is pleased to announce the launch of its Climate Contribution Strategy.

The Climate Contribution Strategy* aims to deliver market leading returns, based on a balanced and risk adjusted strategy, geared towards the deployment of capital into nature-based and renewable energy projects, through carbon offsets.

Commenting, Joachim Emanuelsson, Co-founder, Executive Director SCB, said:

“The Climate Contribution Strategy offers investors the opportunity to gain exposure to the voluntary carbon offsets market through a highly experienced team, with a proven track record of success in the market. Based on our analysis, carbon offsets in the voluntary carbon market can be significantly mispriced, and this, combined with expected growth in corporate demand, mean now is a good opportunity to invest”.

“Securitized investment in voluntary carbon credits will channel further capital into established high-quality projects that score highly on additional and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals co-benefits. The need for funds to be directed into projects of this nature has never been greater. It comes at a time when the need to act on climate change is very real and in focus, with the last five years of the previous decade having been the warmest on record”.

Strategy

The aim of the strategy is to build a balanced portfolio of project types, including nature-based projects, with some funds also being allocated to renewable energy and lower carbon fuel projects. Capital is allocated to projects with a variety of vintages, and geography, with adjusted risk, based on concentration limits, holding periods and transaction sizing.

Team & SCB

The portfolio management and execution team have experience in the carbon offsets markets, a service SCB launched four years ago. Individuals bring multiple skillsets to the strategy, from a variety of backgrounds, including commodities trading, sustainable management structures, environmental science, analysis, and asset management. SCB has abated more than 500 million metric tonnes of CO2 across its global transactions and aims to abate one billion tonnes of CO2 by 2030.
