The carbon markets are not only illiquid but also plagued by a lack of transparency, structure, and standardization. This radical untransparency has significantly tarnished the reputation of the industry. In response, industry incumbents have become slower and more conservative. This has failed to address the fundamental problems that the industry is most criticized for - being a black box that nobody understands.
Solid World is here to change that by creating key infrastructure to enable radically transparent markets. Our approach to risk assessment, project analysis, contracts, and liquid markets with transparent prices and traceable trading offers unprecedented transparency from end-to-end. Inspired by the innovative spirit of successful entrepreneurs who dared to challenge the status quo, we aspire to redefine what carbon markets should be.
We believe in the power of community and collaboration. By fostering transparency, structure, and standardization, we can restore trust in the carbon markets and unleash their full potential to combat climate change. By building an infrastructure that breaks down barriers and enables open collaboration, Solid World will address the industry's current challenges and pave the way for a climate-positive civilization.
Together, we can create a future where the carbon markets are a driving force for change, empowering businesses, individuals, and communities to contribute to a sustainable, thriving planet.
- Carbon projects face challenges accessing liquidity. This stops them from scaling the climate action the planet desperately needs.
- Companies struggle to find a high-quality supply for certified carbon credits, as they prefer these over cumbersome and specific project finance agreements.
- The market suffers from a failure, characterized by noise, opacity, and a lack of structure, leaving suppliers struggling to meet demand and find the right organizations to finance them.
- The industry is caught in a cascading supply crunch, with markets expected to grow 25-50x by 2030. However, they are currently not scaling fast enough to meet this demand.
