Emstream embraces technology
to make it easier than ever for companies to trade Environmental Products, like carbon credits and renewable energy certificates (RECs) to align
profit and planet.

smart Tech

Unlike most brokers we believe in promoting transparency and investing in technology to drive down the cost of transactions.  Our proprietary tech makes it possible for our clients to visualise their markets and compare prices across key variables. 

We also believe in equitable markets, so access to our platform and global network of corporate buyers, project developers, commodity traders, investment banks and energy companies is free to anyone supporting transparency.

We use smart technology to make Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) markets more accessible, reduce transaction fees and to allow you to spend more time making the big changes required to transform your business.

As a tech-enabled broker, our role is to pool liquidity online, facilitate the faster origination of deals and empower our clients to make data-driven decisions. Our team of brokers use interpersonal skills to understand your needs and software to respond faster.


Join us to connect directly with buyers and sellers of carbon, renewable energy, plastics, biodiversity and methane certificates and green gas.

Emstream was founded in 2018 alongside UK tech start-up Emsurge, to deliver through digitalisation, a more efficient way of trading highly bespoke and traditionally opaque commodity markets efficient. 


Emsurge was to provide the software and Emstream the human touch to encourage the adoption of technology in commodity trading.   In lieu of the climate crisis in 2021, both companies pivoted together to help scale climate finance through building the crucial digital market infrastructure being demanded by the voluntary carbon market.
