"FCStone Carbon, LLC (FCO2) is the FCStone Group, Inc.’s risk management platform for the emerging worldwide carbon market that is estimated to exceed one trillion dollars by 2012.* The FCO2 System will reach even beyond that market because our system creates an international green, or sustainability, trading platform.

Carbon credits can ultimately serve to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, encourage better energy practices, improve watershed quality, and reduce global warming. FCO2 is on its way to becoming a world-wide leader in the carbon credit market. The FCO2 system ensures that carbon offset credits are validated/verified/audited and registered. We are working with appropriate U.S. governmental agencies to develop Carbon Trading Standards.

FCO2 provides clients with clearing execution on all major U.S. exchanges, including the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), and will serve as an intermediary for newly created U.S. Exchanges. FCO2 has also developed other major marketing initiatives to be able to market Carbon Credits.""Carbon Credit" has a significant impact, so an analyst should put more weight into it.
