CORE Markets and BeZero Ink Partnership For Carbon Market Transparency

Melbourne-based markets, technology, and climate solutions provider CORE Markets announced a partnership with carbon ratings and risk analytics firm BeZero Carbon.

The partnership will see CORE Markets incorporate BeZero Carbon’s carbon credit project ratings and independent quality assessments directly into the CORE Markets software-as-a-service platform.

Users of the software can already search, identify and evaluate carbon projects, a process that has now been enhanced by BeZero Carbon’s independent quality signals.

This new feature in the software builds out the existing infrastructure in the lead-up to the upcoming launch of the CORE Markets corporate decarbonisation platform.

CORE Markets customers can manage their end-to-end market analysis and project sourcing in one place, from due diligence and valuation to the final purchase.

Carbon markets are a critical tool in global net zero goals and help mobilise investment in nature and technology-based climate solutions.

The new partnership between CORE Markets and BeZero Carbon aims to address the growing need for information transparency in these markets and in helping businesses make empowered climate and nature investment decisions.

Remarking on the partnership Tommy Ricketts, CEO and Co-founder of BeZero Carbon said: “Momentum in the Voluntary Carbon Market continues to grow, but the market will not scale effectively without access to independent analysis so investors can make informed decisions about carbon credit quality. We’re proud to partner with companies like CORE Markets to achieve our shared goals of improving transparency and disclosure in the Voluntary Market so it can scale, and to assist corporations to meet their climate goals.”

Chris Halliwell, Co-founder and CEO of CORE Markets added: “To meet our global net zero targets, we need internal emissions reduction and investment in carbon projects to happen in parallel and as fast as possible. Creating better market access and efficiency is key to making this happen. The partnership with BeZero Carbon allows CORE Markets to provide our customers with an additional layer of analysis and quality assurance in international carbon markets.”
