Our Home, Our Oka

Oka means “home” in Tupi Guarani, one of the most widespread indigenous language groups from the Amazon rainforest.


Carbon Credit Insurance Protects the Pathway to Net Zero

Oka, The Carbon Insurance Company™ is de-risking the voluntary carbon market (VCM) for buyers and sellers of carbon credits. Our first-of-its-kind carbon credit insurance solution provides buyers with financial compensation in the event of unforeseeable and unavoidable post-issuance risks, including reversal and invalidation.

Protected by Oka, one credit purchased represents one metric ton of carbon removed. By upholding accounting integrity in the unregulated and unpredictable VCM, we instill confidence in and drive capital towards climate investments.
