The world needs immediate, effective and global climate action to secure our sustainable future.

Trading platform .
Through Core Climate, corporates and investors can source, purchase, settle and retire voluntary carbon credits in phases. Carbon credits on the platform come from quality, internationally-certified carbon projects from across the world, including carbon avoidance and reduction projects such as deforestation avoidance and renewable energy, as well as CO2 removal projects such as reforestation.
Trusted marketplace .
The platform provides best-in-class market infrastructure and effective, transparent and certified carbon credits and instruments that corporates and investors can use to deliver on their commitment to net zero. All carbon credits generated by projects listed on Core Climate are issued under international standards, such as Verified Carbon Standard under VERRA.
Global community .
In collaboration with members of the International Carbon Market Council, as well as key stakeholders and partners across the climate value chain, Core Climate builds on Hong Kong’s position as a leading global financial centre, and connects capital with climate-related products and opportunities in Hong Kong, Mainland China and globally.
"We see Core Climate as core infrastructure which can mobilise the investment needed to fund new climate projects, technologies and business models. This will accelerate the shared net-zero transition and secure a sustainable future for coming generations."
