Transitioning to a low carbon economy
The carbon markets have experienced tremendous growth in recent years, and as the world transitions to a low carbon economy, that growth is expected to accelerate. As a result, environmental sustainability has become increasingly important to the success and longevity of our clients. At J.P. Morgan, we bring together our advice, market knowledge and execution capabilities to help clients mitigate risks associated with climate change and cost-effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Whether supporting the development of the markets, or expanding our capabilities to meet client demand, J.P. Morgan has taken a leadership role in addressing the challenges and opportunities of a carbon-constrained environment. The firm helped found the New York Mercantile Exchange’s Green Exchange. The exchange offers a range of environmental futures, options and swap contracts for markets focused on solutions to climate change, renewable energy and other environmental challenges.
J.P. Morgan provides end-to-end carbon solutions across origination, sales, trading and risk management. We work with individuals and corporations to originate high quality emission certificates, across a range of technologies, geographies and standards and provide full transactional trading support services, as well as a global distribution platform.
In addition to these market-based solutions, J.P. Morgan’s Treasury Services business has developed a range of paperless solutions for clients to choose from that limit or eliminate paper use and reduce expenses, while continuing to meet requirements for accuracy, secured transactions and regulatory guidelines. Our offering includes electronic statements and access, imaging and card solutions, and electronic payables and receivables.
Minding our own footprint
We are continuously looking to improve our own use of resources to increase energy, water and material efficiency; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and actively advance the public discourse.
