LONDON: IHS Markit (Nasdaq: INFO), a world leader in critical information, analytics and solutions, was named Best Registry Provider in Environmental Finance magazine’s 2018 Voluntary Carbon Markets Rankings. IHS Markit has won the award for nine straight years.
“We are grateful that our customers have so consistently recognized the services and value that we bring to environmental markets,” said Kathy Benini, managing director and global head of Environmental solutions at IHS Markit. “The Registry provides critical infrastructure to global environmental markets, helping organizations manage environmental projects, credit issuances, transfers and retirements while providing the transparency, efficiency and scalability required by any emerging market.”
The Environmental Registry is the largest, global, registry for carbon, water and biodiversity credits, measured by volume, number of environmental standards on the registry and number of customers. It provides full tracking of credits from issuance to transfer to retirement or cancellation for more than 250 million credits.
“Bringing technology solutions to data and workflow challenges is part of our DNA at IHS Markit,” Benini said. “This year we expanded our footprint in the environmental, social and governance field with the launch of a new tech-driven ESG reporting service. We are also working with customers to create a meta-registry solution using distributed ledger technology to reduce the risk of double claiming and double counting carbon credits.”
In July, IHS Markit launched its ESG Reporting Repository. This service provides an online platform for the collection, storage and dissemination of corporate ESG data.
Environmental Finance magazine provides news and analysis on sustainable investment, green finance and the people and companies active in environmental markets.
