With a management based in Amsterdam, the VCF has a dedicated team of international CDM experts with over 30 years of experience working in CDM Project Development including over 50 projects registered and 10 methodologies developed by the team members.
Organisationally, the VCF is part of Asset Optimisation and Trading, the commercial hub of the Vattenfall Group responsible for a diversified sourcing of carbon credits and fuels, physical and financial commodity trading as well as optimisation and hedging of Vattenfall’s asset portfolio.
One of Vattenfall’s objectives is to be a leader in environmentally sustainable energy production. The company’s strategic focus is to reduce its CO2 footprint by increasing energy generation from energy sources with small life-cycle emissions of carbon dioxide.
Vattenfall is one of the largest and most experienced compliance buyers in the EU-ETS, having been active in the CDM market since 2004.
Continuously evaluating the current status and expected development for emissions trading around the world, we follow the impacts of financial events on carbon markets and evaluate how a re-focusing of the global economy towards investments in clean technology and natural resources can help restructure and revive global markets.
Vattenfall’s size and experience helps us adapt quickly to new market trends and policies.
