Singapore. 11/04, Nexum Foundation INC / HBK DOP and The Climate Group Africa announced their new big and visionary project: the development of an online carbon credits exchange platform that will act as the exclusive market conduit for the carbon credits awarded to The Climate Group Africa through its activities. Their aim is to facilitate and promote the tokenization process of the carbon credit industry.
Committed to the vision of data disruption in oil and shipping industry and blue investments, Nexum Foundation actively supports technological disruptions that leverage innovative data models towards a more sustainable planet.
These three institutions have joined forces and united their complementing expertise aiming to promote Africa’s interest and increase its presence in the international carbon credit industry and bring benefits to the local communities. HBKDOP is an establishment dedicated to executing infrastructure projects globally such as energy, agriculture, oil and gas and financial services with particular interest in the renewables sector. The Climate Group Africa Limited develops and trades climate related projects in Africa and South America.
Nexum Foundation’s Founder Panagiotis Georgolios expressed his gratitude and satisfaction for this collaboration by stating “We are excited with this new collaboration. Shipping is considered a major polluter. That might not be fair characterization considering that it facilitates more than 80% of the global trade. Irrespectively, the shipping industry will need carbon credits. This initiative allows the foundation a strategic position in the carbon credit industry and supports our mission to promote the tokenization process of assets and services with tangible economic fundamentals and valuable offering in the maritime world. We are also very happy that this effort will also support the local communities in Africa and allow them to receive real economic benefits”.
HBKDOP’s Group CEO Anwar Hussein conveyed his appreciation for this partnership by stating “We have shifted our focus to a variety of projects, including those which actively remove emissions. Ensuring climate action is truly effective and remains a top priority. Climate protection and innovation are among the fundamental building blocks for making our future sustainable. Supporting the carbon future science-based approach with our joint partners, delivering vital element, traceability and transparency, and hence the need for business and governments in working together towards building a sustainable society.”
The Climate Group Africa’s CEO Michael Shamku said “The experiences of the pandemic are promising a brighter future for climate action and sustainability as the conviction to tackle global issues has strengthened. The pressure to act on climate change has become critical and has further driven commitment from those who have been reluctant to act on sustainability. We support African Governments to benefit from Global Climate Funds (GCF) grants, loans and technical assistance in specific areas such as forestry conservation efforts, improving adaptation and mitigation capacities within Africa.”
