Xpansiv Spot Market CBL to Launch Trading of Carbon Credits Registered on EcoRegistry


NEW YORK, SYDNEY, LONDON — Xpansiv, the premier infrastructure provider for environmental markets, today announced plans to launch trading in carbon credits from EcoRegistry on February 21st. EcoRegistry, the leading carbon registry in Latin America, will be fully integrated with Xpansiv spot market CBL’s central limit order book enabling instantaneous trade execution on firm offer prices and same-day (T+0) settlement of cash and credits through the exchange’s fully automated post-trade system.

“The Cercarbono carbon crediting standard, which uses our blockchain-based platform for its registry system, has issued over 47 million credits with ISO’s carbon standards adhering to stringent criteria for high-integrity crediting,” said Juan David Duran Hernandez, CEO of EcoRegistry. “We are excited that communities, proponents and representatives of projects ranging from Latin America to India to Turkey will soon be able to make their credits available for trading on the CBL spot market.”

Cercarbono credits will trade alongside credits from American Carbon Registry, Climate Action Reserve, Gold Standard, and Verra Registry. In 2022, more than 250 different project-specific carbon credits from 34 countries were transacted on the CBL spot market.

“We are pleased to offer our clients this expanded array of projects in Latin America and beyond,” said Amy Bann, Senior Vice President, Supply & Ecosystem. “CBL participants can now transact Cercarbono credits on our platform alongside the other carbon and renewable energy contracts they trade currently.”

Xpansiv is currently working with clients to set up EcoRegistry accounts prior to the launch of live trading scheduled for February 21.
