APX Environmental Markets
We helped build this industry; let us help build your programs and businesses
APX Environmental Markets is proud to have worked side by side with our clients in giving birth to many of
the critical environmental markets in existence today.
- We have been an integral part of every US REC market since their initial inception in California in the late nineties.
- We launched the world’s first Renewable Energy Credit Registry in 2001 in support of the Texas Renewable Energy Credit Trading Program.
- Since then, we have built seven additional REC registries supporting every renewable energy market and compliance program in the United States (see map).
- In 2008 we developed the first voluntary carbon registry infrastructure and today we support the major US and international voluntary carbon credit programs, including the first Offset Project Registries approved by the California Air Resources Board.
- Most recently, APX birthed TIGRS, Tradable Instruments for Global Renewables, to provide a standardized way for voluntary markets to grow around the world. You can learn more about APX TIGRs here: Tradable Instruments for Global Renewables.
- Our unique Software-as-a-Service solutions coupled with our team’s vast background serves as the bedrock of the majority of renewable energy and carbon credit programs in existence today.
