First place for First Climate in the Environmental Finance Voluntary Carbon Market Ranking.
This year, around 1,500 participants responded to the Voluntary Carbon Market survey conducted by Environmental Finance Magazine and voted for the best service providers in this area. The award for ‘Best Wholesaler’ as well as a second place in the “Best Trading Company” category go to First Climate.
The Environmental Finance Voluntary Carbon Market Ranking was carried out for the eighth time this year and with this reached its record of participants. As reported by the magazine’s representatives, the number of votes cast this year was almost double that of the previous year. This is proof that awareness of voluntary carbon offsetting is growing, in particular since the approval of the Paris Agreement last year as ever more companies are recognizing the benefits of offsetting their emissions.
The participants were able to vote for the Voluntary Carbon Market Rankings online. After coming second in recent years, First Climate won the first place for “Best Wholesaler” this year.
“We are pleased with the recognition and trust of our customers and partners that is demonstrated through this award. Together with them, we want to continue working on transforming voluntary commitment into measurable added value for our environment.”
Sascha Lafeld, CEO First Climate Markets AG
