Credits for ESG and Sustainable Initiatives
Values-driven investors seek to align their portfolios with their personal beliefs.
The US Government offers Tax Incentive Programs through the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) which allow it to direct private sector investment.
Many such programs are Environmental, Social and Governance Responsible, with sustainable goals and initiatives.
Is the company investing in energy efficient and sustainable solutions?
Does the company promote social equality and improved living standards?
How are the companies being managed and do they stand behind progressive change?
We are dedicated to the spirit and purpose of these incentives and the benefits they provide; continually monitoring for tax legislation changes and new opportunities for tax efficiency and sustainable investment.
In addition to tax credits for items like solar development, the government also requires industries that create CO2 emissions, develep land or in some fashion impact the environment in a negative fashion to purchase environmental or carbon credits.
THERE ARE THREE BASIC TYPES OF CARBON CREDITS
Credit Producing Initiatives
Developers that are able to enhance the land in a fashion such as described in items 1-3 can sell their credits to "bad actor" industries that have historically been major polluters of the environment.
These industries include:
Oil & Gas
Reducing emissions through the use of energy efficient measures
Removing emissions through carbon capture and planting forests
Avoiding emissions by refraining from cutting down rainforests
