Carbon Credits: A Greener Solution with Kyle Hong and Kevin Duan at Alcove Management

Kyle Hong and Kevin Duan are here to give us a primer on Carbon Credits. The main goal of this podcast is to provide a general overview of Carbon Credits, then follow up with more in-depth discussions about opportunities.

"One project in South America involves the purchase of a large portion of the Amazon Forest. Because it removes so much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere each year, it already generates a large number of carbon credits for the region as a whole.

What made me immediately interested in carbon credits was a combination of several things. There was the growing importance of climate change and the belief that we as a species must take action in response to it. Such as climate change prevention, traveling into an area where the environmental repercussions would be devastating for Earth's biosphere. It has been a topic that I've heard about since I was old enough to even go to school. It's been relevant for my entire life. It's always been in the background.

As a venture capitalist, you're always on the lookout for new opportunities to invest in companies. Recent paradigm shifts have given rise to early-stage innovation, which includes access to proprietary information or data. This new trend was brought to my attention a couple of months ago during the UN Climate Change Conferences asking governments to privatize decarbonization. Essentially accelerating the phasing out of coal and also curtailing deforestation.

Investors, governments, and corporations are on the lookout for high-quality projects that will help the United Nations achieve its set of sustainable development goals. If we give to these communities, we help build medical clinics, improve schools and teach them sustainable farming and fishing techniques. As a result of these types of programs, more people will be aware of deforestation, they will be better educated, and their lives will be improved. Everything adds value to both our credit and the counties in which we operate."
