Carbon Credit Trading: Invest in your sustainable future.
Reducing emissions is a collaborative effort. And part of a strong sustainability strategy.
Global Market Coverage
Access global carbon credit markets. Get one trade closer to your sustainability goals.
A carbon credit is a form of environmental commodity that derives its value from a tonne of CO2 or equivalent GHG reduced, removed, or captured before entering the air. Credits are generated from projects that either prevent emissions or remove emissions from the atmosphere altogether. You can purchase and apply offsets against your own emissions to work toward Carbon Neutral/Net Zero commitments or comply with government regulations.

Global market coverage.
Global carbon markets are complex. With many government regulated compliance markets and an ongoing dialogue around structure and standards for voluntary markets, navigating market participation can be daunting. Layer on projects with varying degrees of credibility and opaque market forces affecting pricing, and the ability to buy and sell credits.
At BMO Radicle, we can help you navigate your way by supporting the development of your market participation strategy and providing credible and trusted access to carbon credit markets as part of your larger carbon management strategy.
Our trading team transacts across voluntary and compliance carbon markets globally. We have all types of local and global credits, spanning multiple project types and jurisdictions, such as nature-based solutions, renewable energy, energy efficiency, and industrial processes.
A carbon credit (aka carbon offset) is a tradable certificate (e.g., offset, verified emission reduction (VER), verified carbon unit (VCU), certified emission reduction (CER), emission performance credit (EPC), etc.) that represents a one tonne reduction in or removal of carbon dioxide or carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) below a specified quota from projects actively aimed at decreasing emissions.
To generate a carbon credit/offset, you must have an eligible project that reduces emissions to the atmosphere in at least one of three ways:
- Capturing emissions that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere
- Sequestering (storing) emissions from being released in the first place
- Using renewable or clean forms of energy rather than fossil fuels
All of our projects meet the highest quality standards and promote the shift to a low carbon economy. We offer a variety of both project types and jurisdictions. If you’d like to learn more about the individual projects, please email email@example.com
A high-quality carbon offset:
- Is additional: this activity directly led to a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that would not have otherwise happened.
- Is permanent: these emissions reductions will never be reversed.
- Avoids issues such as double counting (meaning it will only be sold once) and leakage (the activity simply moves to another location).
- Is validated and verified by qualified third parties.
- Is certified to a recognized standard, which in North America would include Canadian federal (under development), state, and provincial-level compliance offset registries (e.g., Alberta Emissions Offset Registry), Climate Action Reserve (CAR), American Carbon Registry (ACR), Gold Standard, and Verra.
