CMIA Welcomes New Member Climate Resources Exchange to its Community

5th April 2019 by CMIA

The Climate Markets & Investment Association (CMIA) welcomes new member Climate Resources Exchange International Pte Ltd (CRX) to its community.

Climate Resources Exchange International (CRX) is an interdisciplinary sustainability firm from Singapore. Since 2000, CRX has specialised in the origination of carbon emissions reductions, for which it provides services in environmental asset management, carbon profiling, resource efficiency and sustainability strategy. This includes the design and development of performance-based metrics and carbon pricing solutions.

CRX has also established CRX CarbonBank – an online repository which manages carbon assets and environmental attributes for its clients.

CRX’s strong emphasis on market-based solutions serves its mission of assisting clients in the science of resilience that they mitigate and adapt to climate change in consideration of socio-economic, environmental and financial performance.

CRX has recently launched a new Program of Activities to generate carbon credits under the UNFCCC Clean Development Mechanism called RE-Electrify. This program will allow all participants to reimagine how they do their part and generate carbon credits in order to help meet the goals of the Paris Agreement on behalf of their countries. There are currently three projects in the program from Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia with plans to extend projects across the ASEAN member states.

CMIA’s Executive Director Margaret-Ann Splawn noted: “Climate Resources Exchange has a long history in carbon credit project development and has helped many organisations navigate the increase of environmental regulation. For their clients they broaden focus on gaining economic value, environmental ownership and intrinsic business qualities. We welcome CRX to our community as a member company representative in the ASEAN states and look forward to their contribution to our thought leadership to building a low carbon economy in the new Paris Agreement world.”

Co-Founder & CEO, Vinod Kesava said “We are pleased to join CMIA, which for more than 10 years has been assisting the private sector in climate change policy and in the deployment of the flow of funds for projects that are real, long-term and measurable. CMIA’s work over the years has set a clear direction for the next generation of communities involved in the space of climate change mitigation and adaptation and we are happy to be a part of the journey”

The Climate Markets and Investment Association (CMIA) is an independent not for profit trade association that has been providing leadership from the private sector in the delivery of climate investment policy and market mechanisms since 2008. Through climate policy, finance and investment, CMIA is leading a global coalition of private sector actors to mobilise the trillions that will enable a transition to a climate-resilient, low-carbon, sustainable economy.
