Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, and it holds great promise as a source of clean, reliable energy. Researchers continue to develop new hydrogen-based approaches to energy generation, but a lack of storage, transportation, and other infrastructure elements has kept implementation costs higher than those associated with fossil fuels.
We help identify a truer measure of hydrogen-related costs by accounting for the low carbon emissions associated with hydrogen.
We believe that the true cost of hydrogen-based energy projects can only be assessed if their carbon savings are included in the equation. With more than two decades of experience with carbon pricing, we are ready to identify the hydrogen solutions that fit your projects and portfolio.
True innovation, maximum carbon revenues
Our deep experience with carbon markets helps us accurately assess the carbon-related value of your hydrogen investment, and to get full credit on carbon markets for your climate-friendly decisions. We are prepared to help with:
- Feasibility assesments
- Methodology development under the respective scheme
- Project registration
- Preparing for carbon issuance (MRV)
- Carbon-offset strategy over time and for various market segments
- Establishing contact to buyers
- Navigating Guarantees of Origin (GO) required in various legislative environments
“Green hydrogen holds vast potential to reduce global GHG emissions significantly. It is of utmost importance to evaluate the complete hydrogen supply chain to assess its emissions reduction potential, and to prioritize hard-to-abate sectors.”
“We help accelerating the transition to green hydrogen economies through carbon markets. Proud to be founding partner of the Hydrogen for NetZero Initiative (add link) aiming to mobilise climate finance for our customers.”
“I am only satisfied with our results if they follow a clear and comprehensible approach and no detail remains unanswered for our customers”
What sets us apart
A truer view of hydrogen
When you add the value of carbon savings to your projects’ books, you can break even more quickly and make a stronger case for future investment. We help you reflect the true value of your projects with valorised carbon assets.
Carbon markets continue to proliferate, and it is crucial that you find one that supports your objectives. We offer a comprehensive and continually refreshed overview of the entire carbon-market field, from domestic ETS and international systems such as CDM, to voluntary carbon markets of various types.
Entering a carbon market can be difficult, starting with registering your project under the targeted carbon pricing model you choose. If your project represents a new technology or just a new approach, you may need to document its methodology, and your application will need to include provisions for monitoring, reporting, and validation. We have supported the successful issuance of more than 50 million carbon credits, and the documentation of dozens of new methodologies.
We will find the best offtake-contract partner for your situation, and will help you agree on a contract tailored to your needs.

Promoting carbon-neutral hydrogen through UNFCCC and National – Level policies
Companies have an undeniable responsibility to act on climate change. Not only to reduce their emissions, but to communicate their progress towards carbon neutrality.
Reflections on the EU Commission’s recent Sustainable Carbon Cycle conference: What has been discussed, where do we stand, and what remains to be done?
Led by the European Commission, the European Parliament has adopted a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions target for 2050. The European Green Deal outlines a corresponding vision, outlines a range of possible scenarios, and describes a toolset to help EU member states achieve shared objectives. The Commission’s recent Communication on sustainable carbon cycles highlights three key actions, including “upscale carbon removal solutions”.
“Sustainability” has taken on such a range of connotations that even the companies most eager to pursue it can find themselves at a loss as to where to start. In this post, we’ll examine what sustainability means, and how Perspectives can help you make it part of your business strategy.
