Investments in Focus

Durum Carbon

Product Overview

Durum Carbon LP (“Durum Carbon”) was created to provide investors with unique exposure to the rapidly growing asset class of carbon credits. Canada’s transition to a low-carbon economy and tightening environmental regulations have led to the creation of a unique market opportunity for the purchase and sale of carbon credits in Canada. Durum Carbon LP ultimately seeks to participate in this market through the strategic acquisition and management of a carbon credit portfolio.

Investment Thesis

Through active management, Durum Carbon is an investment vehicle that is able to participate in a broader range of carbon markets compared to other direct carbon credit investment options such as the exchange-traded funds currently available in the market. Durum Carbon’s main investment approach is simple:
1. To purchase carbon credits in the Alberta compliance market under a buy-and-hold strategy;
2. Actively monitor the regulatory environment and rebalance the portfolio as regulations evolve;
3. Ultimately profit from Canada’s proposed carbon price escalation and tightening environmental regulations in the federal and provincial market.
Durum Carbon is a 4-year closed-end limited partnership, a timeline that provides investors with exposure to the anticipated carbon price escalation up until 2026, where the carbon price is expected to increase from $50 today to $110, an annual increase of 22%. Carbon credits will be purchased from environmental project developers and high-performing industrial facilities and then eventually sold to industrial facilities with higher relative carbon intensities, commodity brokers & marketers, and other market participants.
