We believe markets form and develop with the cooperation of interested and capable communities and that early-stage markets such as carbon mitigation, impact investing, renewables, nutrients and others demand an even higher level of market participant support and resources. These markets are too important to fail, so ensuring the early evolution of the marketplace does not hamper its ultimate potential is critical.
To help markets launch and develop efficiently, Bluesource participates in strategic alliances, private and public advisory, founders’ circles and various product and service working committees. By way of example, we were a founding member of the American Carbon Registry and sat on the steering committee of the Verified Carbon Standard, aiding in market design for two of the world’s leading carbon reduction programs.
Even the launch of Bluesource in 2001 was, in itself, a pursuit of developing the early carbon offset markets. Since then, we have started or nurtured numerous for-profit and not-for-profit ventures in low-carbon infrastructure; carbon capture, utilization, and storage; poverty abatement; and low-carbon technologies. To this end, we are committed to leveraging our influence and experience to aid innovative and entrepreneurial social and environmental efforts.
