Environmental Markets

A common thread of our practice is harnessing the power of markets to drive positive environmental change. We work at all scales, from building market infrastructure and developing organizational strategies to structuring transactions.

Highlights of our environmental markets work include:

Managing, with Fondaction and Coop Carbone, The Inlandsis Fund, a North American leader in financing projects that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It is the only Canadian fund with this exclusive focus, providing flexible capital solutions for new and expanding projects.

Playing a key role in establishing at the time the third largest carbon market in North America, closing 39 carbon offset projects for $52M.
