Trade in voluntary carbon offsets on CBL, a spot trading commodity platform for the credits, has leapt to 25.3 million since January, up by 235% compared to the same period in 2019, according to company data. The significant gain comes amid an increase in “new market participants and corporate clients looking for a simplified pathway to offset their carbon footprint,” said CBL, an Xpansiv owned company. The recently launched GEO also drove trading volumes, CBL said.
