Thousands were sold Carbon Credits as part of their SIPP investment portfolio, but many haven’t really benefited from the investment with many firms going to the wall after carbon credits fell in value to negligible figures.

This not only ruined a lot of people’s pensions – and therefore retirements – but it also uncovered the large-scale mis-selling of Carbon Credits investments, particularly through SIPP accounts.

Not regulated by the FCA, Carbon Credits are considered a high-risk investment. But despite this, they were sold by the truck-load to people with little investment experience, little wealth and with a slim capacity of loss, making them thoroughly unsuitable for such a complex and risky investment.

The good news?

Get Claims Advice specialise in fighting for compensation in such cases where the investor was negligently advised to place their money into a Carbon Credits scheme by a regulated financial adviser.

Timeline of events: Carbon Credits

1990's - Growing Global Warming Concerns

More and more scientists concur: the earth is warming up, and excess green houses gases are the likely cause.

1997 - The Kyoto Protocol

The Kyoto Protocol opened the door to the existence of Carbon Credits. Ratified by at least 55 states, it represented a near global promise to combat carbon build up.

2000's - The Carbon Market

Trading begins in earnest, as companies buy up carbon credits to offset their carbon production, hopefully neutralising the effect of carbon on the environment.

2010's - Collapse of Carbon Companies

Into the 2010’s, it was becoming obvious that some carbon credit schemes were outright scams, and faith in the market dipped. Some carbon credits schemes went under completely, and are now valued at zero.
