Further discussions were also held with officials from the University of Nairobi, the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) and the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) in creating a future roadmap.

At present, Africa is lagging in terms of carbon trading with a market share of just 5% at $123 million in 2021. Further, Kenya is far behind the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in terms of the number of carbon credits issued. A key reason for lower participation is the lack of focus on the renewable energy and agriculture sectors as well as large costs associated with project registration.

Xeptagon and Mayleen jointly presented a solution that will provide unique and technology-based solutions to these problems. The proposal includes developing a state-of-the-art Carbon Credit Exchange, a Carbon Registry and an MRV (measurement, reporting and verification system) for Kenya. Xeptagon has already provided climate finance and carbon credit trading software solutions to Inter-Governmental Organizations, Governments and Top Fortune 500 Businesses to achieve a competitive advantage and tangible results in the climate finance domain.

We are excited about the development in the climate finance domain. Read more about our climate finance software and carbon credit exchange from here.
