Description: Design and implement the processes required for managing a carbon assets trading desk for a commodities trader. Neyen Consulting supported the client in both building and later managing a carbon trading desk including operational, regulatory and other risk assessment of projects. This project also included the negotiations of emissions reductions purchase agreements and the process for a private entity to participate in carbon trading through comprehensive risk evaluation. The project included the delivery of multiple documents describing the current regulatory and economic environment of global carbon trading markets, including developments on the Paris Agreement especially around Article 6. Additionally, a methodology for undertaking an analysis of eligibility of selected projects was also created with the objective of evaluating the potential of projects to be accepted into different international mechanisms in the global carbon markets.
