Australia’s biggest listed companies would do well to take note of the latest figures out from Xpansiv, the global marketplace for ESG-inclusive commodities. In a report released on Friday, Xpansiv announced that its CBL platform, “the world’s largest exchange for trading carbon credits, renewable energy certificates, water entitlements, and digital fuels,” saw its carbon credit volumes soar 292% year-on-year.

Volumes have now already exceeded 100 million tonnes year-to-date. This comes, in part, as ever more companies are working to get ahead of the net-zero carbon goals promised by their governments in line with the Paris Climate Agreements.
