Voluntary carbon offset buyer hits ESG goals with AEGIS
MARKETS: ENVIRONMENTAL | COMMODITY: CARBON OFFSETS | CLIENT: OIL & GAS PRODUCER

Situation

A voluntary carbon offset buyer had worked exclusively with another firm for offset purchases. This industry provider had sold the company carbon offsets several times over the past few years.
When the company received a quote for 2021 offsets priced at approximately $7.00 per ton, the company contacted
AEGIS.

The company did not have the budget for $7.00 offsets and was therefore unable to meet its ESG goals.

Outcome

AEGIS demonstrated our commitment to fully understanding the company’s situation and providing a company with as many options as possible to achieve their specific ESG goals. By selecting an international offset, the company was able to offset 2021 & 2022 emissions for $3.00 per ton rather than the $7.00 per ton quote provided by another industry provider the company had previously used.

As a result, the company had more options, a deeper understanding of the environmental markets and a predictable ESG for the next two years. In addition, the company understood which elements of an offset came at a premium or a discount. In the end, the company saved approximately 40% in costs for 2022 by buying in advance.

 

In the end, the company saved approximately 40% in costs for 2022 by buying in advance.
