Protect Your Transition to Net Zero
Carbon buyers depend on carbon credits to reduce or eliminate emissions. When carbon projects fail to deliver, net zero becomes impossible. Carbon credit insurance provides much-needed assurances when investing in the voluntary carbon market (VCM).
Buy Insured Carbon Credits
The VCM is an evolving landscape with high risk and high reward. Carbon sellers that offer insurance insulate your climate investments from unforeseen losses.
Carbon Protect is carbon credit insurance. Oka partners with carbon sellers and buyers to cover all project types so your investment is secure.
Every carbon credit you buy should be insured.
Security Throughout the Carbon Credit Lifecycle
Coverages For Post-Issuance Risks
A flood, fire, storm, drought, or earthquake may destroy all or part of the related project, ultimately invalidating carbon credits linked to that project.
Negligent management practices, faulty carbon storage, project failure, land use changes, or illegal harvesting/logging may result in the release of previously sequestered or avoided emissions, ultimately invalidating carbon credits linked to the affected project.
Emission reductions or removals are additional if they would not have taken place without the added incentive created by the carbon credits. The registry can change its assessment of your credits’ additionality, leading to invalidation.
When scientific advances cause a registry to change their methodology or incorrect project baselines alter the measured carbon mitigation amount, re-stated project emission reductions/removals can invalidate a portion of the previously issued credits.
High-quality carbon credits come from projects that avoid social and environment harms and comply with the project jurisdiction’s legal reqirements. Should adverse impacts occur, the associated carbon credits could be invalidated.
More than one project may claim rights to the same carbon being removed or more than one entity could count the carbon removed by your credit in its own carbon offset goals.
The carbon credit market is unregulated, putting your portfolio at risk of fraudulent activity based on intentional misrepresentations of the underlying project.
