EcoSecurities is a veteran in carbon markets and greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation projects worldwide. EcoSecurities specialises in sourcing, developing and financing projects with a positive environmental impact.
Founded in 1997, EcoSecurities grew to become the largest and most influential company in this sector. Today, EcoSecurities has reactivated its project pipeline, contracts book, and alumni network, to participate in a new phase of carbon and environmental markets.
In addition to carbon and climate, EcoSecurities also plans to be active in waste recovery and recycling, to help tackle the increasing challenge related to waste plastics and other pollutants.
Founded ten months before the Kyoto Protocol (January 1997), EcoSecurities the company contributed to the evolution of carbon markets from its outset.
In 2005, EcoSecurities Group Plc listed in the London Stock Exchange, raising capital for an expansion drive that resulted in offices in 33 countries run by over 350 employees. This enabled the company to develop over 700 CDM projects located in 45 countries and using 50 technologies. These projects resulted in the largest carbon credit portfolio worldwide, worth over USD 4 billion, giving the company a significant global market share.
In 2009, the company was acquired by American investment bank JP Morgan, who in 2013 sold it to Swiss trader Mercuria.
In 2018, former EcoSecurities manager Pablo Fernandez and BVRio (an environmental markets NGO created by EcoSecurities founder, Pedro Moura Costa) acquired EcoSecurities to restructure it for a new phase of carbon and environmental markets.
