KLIMAT X WELCOMES TROVE RESEARCH REPORT SHOWING ROBUST REVENUES FOR NATURE BASED PROJECTS

Klimat X Welcomes Trove Research Report Showing Robust and Growing Revenues for Nature Based Restoration Projects


VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 14, 2023 /CNW/ - Klimat X Developments Inc. ("Klimat X" or the "Company") (TSXV: KLX) (FSE: Q1C) a leading provider of high-quality carbon credits sourced exclusively from afforestation and reforestation projects developed and owned by the Company and its stakeholders, is pleased to share recent independent research from Trove confirming that nature-based restoration projects continue to command very significant premiums over average carbon prices. Over the last 12 months, Trove's research in the report '3Q3 Voluntary Carbon Market in Review' indicates that prices for restoration projects have increased by 63% to weighted average prices approaching USD25 per ton. Trove indicates that investors expect average prices of USD11-18 per ton by the end of 2023 with some investors anticipating prices as high as USD23-26 per ton. These nature restoration projects have attracted significant premiums, while pricing for other project types have remained flat or declined.


Writing in the Financial Times, Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission president and her colleagues from the IMF and WTO wrote 'to get emissions on track, the global price of carbon will need to reach and average of $85 a ton by 2030 ..' ('No More Business As Usual, Financial Times, 2nd December, 2023). Bloomberg reports that Investment Banks including Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase and Barclays are starting to finance carbon credit projects in anticipation of a market that could grow to $1tn.


Klimat X CEO, James Tansey commented 'This research demonstrates that investors and buyers are showing strong interest in the type of restoration projects we have built the company around. The weighted average prices do not properly capture the premiums our projects attract. This research demonstrates that our focus on restoration projects has the potential to build very strong recurring revenues for our shareholders and partners.'

  • Carbon credits can be produced from a range of sources including carbon capture and storage, energy efficiency projects including cookstoves, landfill gas management and nature-based solutions that conserve or restore ecosystems.

  • The Company's current commitments, covering over 50,000 ha of forest restoration and at least 10,000 ha of mangrove conservation are well advanced. To date, the Company has planted almost 1500 ha of forest restoration and has mapped over 20,000 ha of land owned privately by smallholders.

  • The first 5000 ha of restoration is expected to generate approximately 1.9 million tonnes of carbon credits over the project lifespan. The full project areas identified to date have the potential to produce over 35 million tonnes of restoration and conservation carbon credits based on modelling completed to date. The Company continues to expand its pipeline through new project development.

  • According to the Task Force on Scaling Voluntary Carbon Markets1, nature-based solutions have the potential to supply up to 80% of the total volume of credits demanded by the market by 2030.

  • Based on the experience of the company with customers, nature-based restoration projects are currently attracting the strongest interest from large corporate buyers and funds since they have simpler technical foundations: it is simpler to establish pre-project baselines and to show future production of carbon as trees planted in restored areas grow to maturity.
