Rubicon Carbon and Imperative Global

Rubicon Carbon partnered with Imperative Global for the development, financing and marketing of up to US$500 million of Imperative’s high-quality carbon projects. The collaboration between Rubicon Carbon and Imperative signifies a shared commitment to drive quality within the VCM and introduce institutional-scale capital to finance the development of next-generation high-quality, large-scale projects.

The parties have joined forces on large-scale nature-based removals projects and impactful initiatives in the Global South. Every dollar of capital invested in these projects yields meaningful climate, biodiversity, and community benefits. Imperative ’s project portfolio span Africa, Asia, and Latin America, with a focus on native-species reforestation, mangrove restoration, and large-scale agroforestry. Rubicon believes in the use of the VCM to drive a just transition, with projects designed to create transformative benefits for local communities. Through this collaboration, the aim is to generate over 100 million tCO2e of high-quality Verra and/or Gold Standard carbon credits, in addition to substantial co-benefits for biodiversity and other sustainable development goals.

At Imperative we believe that, by applying the rigor, discipline, processes and technology associated with large-scale projects in more mature sectors, we can deliver scale and address the issue of quality at source – on the ground where project activities are occurring. This collaboration with Rubicon Carbon and Freepoint Commodities brings together institutional capital, specialized carbon know-how and deep major-projects expertise. Our goal is to work together to develop best-in-class projects with sector-defining quality and scale.”
Scobie Mackay, CEO of Imperative.
