New Richmond Carbon Marketplace Cash in on your business' sustainability project
The City of Richmond has launched a pilot program to establish a carbon marketplace which will provide funding to local GHG reduction projects in exchange for carbon credits. This locally-based carbon marketplace will be the first of its kind on BC's mainland, and is now in the expression of interest (EOI) stage.

Any local business who is undertaking a project (beyond business as usual) which will reduce GHG emissions, is invited to submit an EOI. Examples of qualifying projects include energy efficient building retrofits, fleet fuel switching or solar thermal installations of hot water heating.
