AEGIS Hedging Adds Environmental Market Capabilities with Acquisition of Emission Advisors
Combination of industry leaders enables integrated procurement and management of commodity hedges and environmental offsets
The Woodlands, Texas, January 5, 2022 – AEGIS Hedging Solutions (“AEGIS” or the “Company”), a recognized technology and advisory leader in hedging markets, announced today that it has acquired Emission Advisors, a recognized leader in the environmental markets.
Emission Advisors works with companies across multiple sectors to understand, purchase, sell, and retire voluntary and compliance offsets in multiple environmental markets, including:
- Voluntary Carbon Offsets;
- Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs);
- Carbon allowances (California Cap and Trade Program and Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI);

“Our customers are actively reducing greenhouse gas emissions through targeted investment in their operations and the purchase of environmental offsets,” said Bryan Sansbury, Chairman and CEO of AEGIS. “With the acquisition of Emission Advisors, we can now provide the same leadership in the environmental offset markets as we have provided in the commodity hedging markets - so that our customers can purchase and retire high-quality offsets at fair prices.”
ESG continues to be an important topic for boards and management teams across every sector of the economy. Whether managing local compliance requirements or participating in voluntary markets, organizations are increasingly assessing their emissions, taking real actions to reduce or offset these emissions, and clearly articulating these actions for investors and the public. Having access to a trusted partner to navigate opaque and often volatile environmental offset markets is essential.
Mike Taylor, CEO of Emission Advisors added, “Companies are increasingly turning to markets to help cost-effectively reduce environmental impacts. We are excited to join AEGIS at a time when the need for deep market expertise, robust trading tools, and modern technology has never been more important for companies committed to managing these risks.”
