History

We set up our business in 1998 to catalyse change in Central Europe by bringing capital to environmental markets there.

In 2001 we were one of the first companies in the world to focus on emissions trading. We saw that the emissions markets offered a brand new way of attracting investment to projects. Starting with project development services under the Kyoto Protocol, we expanded into emissions trading consulting and brokerage to serve our growing client base.

Now we operate one of the largest independent emissions brokerages in Europe and are expanding steadily into energy efficiency.
