5 Reasons Base Carbon Could Be a Great Way to Play the Upsurging Carbon Credit Market

United StatesStated Securities and Exchange Commission has turned up the heat on achieving the goal of Net Zero Carbon by 2030 with a new, stringent mandate. (1)

The world's largest corporations with the most ambitious climate commitments have pledged to cut emissions to zero or even capture more carbon than they actually emit. (8)

Base Carbon Inc. (NEO: BCBN) (OTCPK: BCBNF) is one of the only pure-play ESG companies the average investor can leverage to gain access to the carbon credit market.

Base Carbon currently owns 49.9% of Hardwick Climate Business Limited (HCBL) opening a global pipeline of projects that represent > $400 million of potential capital. (4)

Base Carbon’s investment will fund the distribution of 250,000 fuel-efficient cookstoves, reducing the consumption of wood by at least 71%. Distribution is planned to begin in mid-2022 and to be complete within six months. (5)

The time for talk is over. Governments and corporations across the planet are converging on one objective. Net zero carbon.

On March 21, 2022, U.S. SEC Chairman Gary Gensler just fired a loud shot across the bow. He stated, “the Commission is considering a proposal to mandate climate-risk disclosures by public companies.” (1)

This could have a massive ripple effect on every publicly listed stock in North America. They will have to create new departments to deal with coming climate accounting in their financial statements. (3)

What we are witnessing is truly a once-in-a-lifetimeonce in a lifetime opportunity unfolding. Especially for companies like Base Carbon Inc. (NEO: BCBN); (OTCPK: BNBNF).

Net Zero Carbon Reform Has Triggered a Potentially Massive Under-the-Radar Carbon Credit Market

Right now Base Carbon is a tiny $85.5 million market cap company (6) with the foundation of a large cap and a simple and targeted business model. The company is a capital allocator to the upstream voluntary carbon market which is driven by the net zero voluntary commitments companies are making – which is growing exponentially day by day.

They use their capital and expertise in the carbon markets to finance these carbon emission reduction projects. The objective is to work with partners in developing voluntary credits to help corporations, sovereign entities and educational institutions offset carbon emissions and meet their climate obligations.
According to GFANZ Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero $130 trillion has been mobilized for net zero targets around the world. (2)

If you do the math, with a global population of 7.9 billion people, that’s nearly $16,500 per living person on the planet today. (7)

The world’s largest corporations with the most ambitious climate commitments have pledged to cut emissions to zero or even capture more carbon than they actually emit.

An analysis of data from the UNFCCC’s Race to Zero campaign, Net Zero Tracker project, and financial records shows that among those companies are a number of household names like Starbucks, Comcast, Microsoft, and Netflix. Overall, however, less than 15% of the world’s largest 3,000 companies have any sort of vetted climate commitment. (8)

The rules and regulations are being created right before our eyes. And Base Carbon Inc. (NEO: BCBN); (OTCPK: BNBNF) is primed to be one of those successful companies that could make it to the big leagues.

Base Carbon: a Simple But Brilliant Strategy with Three Significant Competitive Advantages

Advantage #1: The High-Powered Leadership Team

The first and most significant competitive advantage has to be their team and experience. They have already underwritten and developed carbon projects and managed large portfolios of capital. The team has also run and governed public companies.

Together the team has over 80 years of money management experience and have developed over 40 discreet carbon projects. This includes more than 13 C-suite roles and Board of Director roles. (9)

While it is a new industry for financial and public markets, the Base Carbon management team has the experience and understanding to navigate all the nuances and unchartered territories.

Advantage #2: The Reverse Take Over

Base Carbon raised over $50 million in a brokered deal or Reverse Take Over (RTO). (10)

Unlike a traditional IPO, RTO disclosure documents are generally not reviewed by securities commissions, only by the exchange on which they propose to list. Although this reduces the regulatory burden on issuers, it also dispenses with an important element of investor protection. (11)

This provided significant cash flow for scale.

Advantage #3: Catching the Early Phase of an Enormous Growth

The carbon markets could be in the same stage as early oil exploration companies of over 100 years ago.

We could see this hockey stick growth over the next 24 months. The adoption curve is real. Hundreds of public companies are on their way and there’s no going back.

Think about this: the value of the primary Voluntary Carbon Market grew by 190% in 2021 to just under US$1 billion. While the voluntary carbon markets are projected to increase from US$ 0.4 billion in 2020 to US$ 10-25 billion per year in 2030. (12)

“Every company and every industry will be transformed by the transition to a net zero world. The question is, will you lead, or will you be led?”
