Buy,Sell,Or Trade: Carbon Credits Buying Selling and Trading Credits

by J.Crawford on October 6, 2008

Making money buying, selling, or trading carbon credits is one of the top green investment predicted for 2010.

China is reportedly taking a serious look at (Wikepedia) carbon credits  as a green investment in 2010. A Chinese firm Sycamore Ventures also recently established a $1 billionChina Greenstar investment fund with an eye on receiving carbon credits. The Chinese government kicked in the first $100 million in funding. {}

India and the US also planned to invest hundreds of millions in  Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects in 2009.

So what does all that mean to the average investor, well besides the fact that the Carbon Credit industry can no longer be considered a fad, not much, as the information on starting a carbon credit related business is not exactly plentiful.  There are very few (we found one!) courses that can help individuals earn money with carbon credits or to purchase credits and resell them. ( Visit the Course in the Next Paragraph)

Buying Carbon Credits.

Buying carbon credits involves contacting a carbon off setting firm, this is typically done by an eco-conscious company or individual.  Buy how do you invest in the carbon credit industry or start a carbon credit business? I don’t pretend to be an expert in carbon credits but I am good at locating credible information (actually my assistant is better) (thanks Jan!)and found a  resource online that guides people in buying, selling or investing in the carbon industry.  If you have interest in that you can learn more by visiting this website or to purchase a carbon credit course you can go here.

Selling Carbon Credits.

Selling the credits also will involve a carbon off setting firm. Apparently you can also calculate your own carbon foot print and buy your own carbon credits. Brokering carbon credits, being the middle man, is what many investors are opting to do. Orchestrating the flow of the carbon credit buying and selling can be a  lucrative venture. ( We are not experts. Contact your accountant or attorney, Don’t take us as the authority)

Trading Carbon Credits.

Not being exactly sure on how carbon credits are valued and if different offsetting firms value each credit differently we can offer a specific course to take on trading carbon credits. If our interested in investing in an up and coming green investment, go  learn more.

Green business ideas( another article )and green investment are a solid opportunity in the next decade. Choosing the right investments takes real expertise and care. We don’t pretend to be advisers in the carbon credits business, we just think they are a green investment that is here to stay.

For those of you that are taking action in the carbon credit industry I personally would love to here from you and judging from emails I get so would quite a few other interested business men and women who have asked if I knew of a good business course on carbon credits.

It amazes me, the growth this industry is experiencing given the fact that the population is at odds as to weather “global warming” even exists. Like a friend told me the other day though, reduce carbon is not contingent on global warming being true, it’s just responsible living, and opportunity to leave the world a better place than we found it without necessarily changing our lifestyle, its American… how about that.

Investing in Carbon Credits

The idea of investing in carbon credits to earn money over time is a great Idea, but I’m not sure an opportunity exists for a carbon credit investment, If you learn of a good way to invest or a company to invest into carbon let us know. It seems trading carbon credits could be a way to fund re-forestation projects or fund other land use developments. I think starting a carbon trading business would be a lucrative idea and I’d be open to hearing any ideas you may have.
