Exchange

ACCE is building a trading platform to transparently buy and sell credible compliance and voluntary carbon credits generated in Africa. The trading platform will provide the medium for transaction, and supporting structures in the form of brokers and local partners throughout Africa. While ACCE believes in the potential to encourage a low carbon Africa through carbon markets, we understand the need to build greater supply for today’s market by exchanging services that address current constraints in Africa.
