Zambia to Host Africa’s First Carbon Credit Exchange
Africa is to see its carbon credit exchange up and running in 2016 in Zambia. The Africa Carbon Credit Exchange (ACCE) will create a platform for individuals and firms to raise capital for various green projects. The bourse is just waiting for the cabinet to approve the process.
Once operational, the exchange will aid in providing finance and investment opportunities in the African carbon market by providing a trading platform for buying and selling instruments to undertake projects in renewable energy and forest preservation.
