With keen interest, SAIFM acknowledges the recent collaboration between the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and Xpansiv, the global environmental markets infrastructure provider. This collaboration introduces a new avenue, the carbon market, through a distinct legal entity, JSE Ventures, allowing local participants to trade carbon credits and renewable energy certificates within local or global registries. Clients will enjoy access to Xpansiv’s global platform for spot trading, auctions, and quotes, offering substantial advancements toward sustainability objectives. Given the significant surge in voluntary carbon markets worldwide from 2020 to 2022, this development marks an opportunity to position South Africa as a pivotal contributor to the global decarbonisation narrative. Spearheaded by Leila Fourie, JSE Group CEO, this initiative aims to foster carbon offset projects, attract investment, and fortify the nation’s commitment to climate action.
