AEGIS Hedging Solutions announced today that it has acquired Emission Advisors, a recognized leader in the environmental markets.
Emission Advisors works with companies across multiple sectors to understand, purchase, sell, and retire voluntary and compliance offsets in multiple environmental markets, such as Voluntary Carbon Offsets and Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs).
Bryan Sansbury, Chairman and CEO of AEGIS, comments:
“Our customers are actively reducing greenhouse gas emissions through targeted investment in their operations and the purchase of environmental offsets. With the acquisition of Emission Advisors, we can now provide the same leadership in the environmental offset markets as we have provided in the commodity hedging markets – so that our customers can purchase and retire high-quality offsets at fair prices.”
ESG continues to be an important topic for boards and management teams across every sector of the economy. Whether managing local compliance requirements or participating in voluntary markets, organizations are increasingly assessing their emissions, taking real actions to reduce or offset these emissions, and clearly articulating these actions for investors and the public. Having access to a trusted partner to navigate opaque and often volatile environmental offset markets is essential.
Mike Taylor, CEO of Emission Advisors, added:
“Companies are increasingly turning to markets to help cost-effectively reduce environmental impacts. We are excited to join AEGIS at a time when the need for deep market expertise, robust trading tools, and modern technology has never been more important for companies committed to managing these risks.”
