Crypto and the Environment

While the industry is actively engaged in improving energy systems and mining practices to accelerate a renewable transition, Bitcoin’s Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus algorithm requires substantial computational power to validate and record transactions and ensure network security. This has prompted Valour’s issuance of a carbon-neutral Bitcoin product to enable investors to obtain their desired exposure to the world’s largest digital asset in a way which is aligned with their ESG and sustainability objectives.

Valour's Commitment

Valour’s mission is to democratise the future of finance by empowering investors to easily access industry leading technologies in the digital asset space. In addition to bridging the gap between traditional capital markets and decentralised finance, Valour strives to ensure that its offerings promote sustainable practices and contribute to the transition to net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030 and is a proud signatory of the Crypto Climate Accord.

Valour BTC Carbon Neutral: our approach

Innovation lies at the core of Valour’s proposition. Working with our various partners, we have developed a proven route to decarbonize the footprint of our Valour BTC Carbon Neutral ETP. In doing so, Valour has identified and reviewed industry benchmarks and best practices to ensure that all aspects of the structure follow the latest research principles and actionable recommendations. Abiding by the highest standards and deploying a methodology that most accurately calculates the emissions relating to Bitcoin, Valour’s approach stands at the forefront of the funds industry, promoting sustainable development through proven quality carbon avoidance and removal projects.

Our Partners

Valour’s partnership with leading climate action infrastructure provider, Patch, considers  various inputs, including the efficiency of mining equipment, distribution of hash power, and nation level carbon emission data, to accurately estimate the carbon emissions linked to the Valour Carbon Neutral ETP.

In offsetting these emissions, Patch only selects high integrity projects that prevent, remove and sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, ensuring that they have been vetted by qualified organizations and standards, including; Gold Standard, Climate Action Reserve, Verified Carbon Standard, BCarbon, American Carbon Registry and Puro.Earth. The criteria Patch uses to ensure projects deliver the highest impact are: additionality, real and verifiable permanence, and negativity.

Valour BTC Carbon Neutral -Valour’s Strategy:

Alignment to globally recognised industry leading principles

Valour’s carbon neutral strategy encompasses the latest Oxford University Principles for Net Zero Aligned Carbon Offsetting to ensure that only carbon credits of the highest quality and credibility are incorporated in its project mix. According to the university’s multidisciplinary team, a greater focus on carbon removal credits is needed to satisfy net-zero targets than current reduction methods.  Additionally, the principles call for a shift towards long-lived storage projects that remove carbon from the atmosphere on a permanent or almost permanent basis.

Portfolio price contribution weighted to carbon reduction rather thancarbon avoidance

Given the above recommendations, Valour invests in a portfolio project mix with 50% allocation towards avoidance projects and 50% allocation towards removal projects, with both favouring projects with long-term storage horizons. In light of the advanced technological requirements, and resulting high price points, associated with carbon removal projects, Valour has allocated 90% of its price contributions towards the innovative, longer-duration storage carbon removal methods, and 10% towards established carbon avoidance initiatives.

Global diversification

BTC is a global initiative and hence Valour’s carbon credit portfolio is structured to incorporate carbon offset projects from around the globe.
