Invest in Bitcoin simply, securely and sustainably.
Valour Bitcoin Carbon Neutral ETP provides investors with sustainable and climate-friendly exposure to Bitcoin. The carbon neutral ETP presents a trusted investment option which benefits the environment and aligns with ESG goals by funding certified carbon removal and offset initiatives in order to neutralise the associated bitcoin carbon footprint.
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 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’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.
