“I am excited to join the IncubEx team at a time when we are witnessing a sea change in addressing climate change,” Fraim said. “These markets are vital to companies and market participants that require trading instruments, high quality market data and sophisticated risk management technologies and tools to achieve their carbon reduction goals. IncubEx is perfectly placed alongside their partners to provide these vital products and services to this growing number of participants.”

“In the past five years, IncubEx has established itself as a true accelerator of environmental markets, expanding carbon markets on EEX, developing the world’s largest suite of listed carbon, renewable energy certificate and renewable fuel credit products with our partners at Nodal Exchange, and launching an innovative new marketplace in the voluntary carbon offset sector with TVCM,” said Michael MacGregor, CEO of IncubEx. “We’re excited to bring Ed onboard to continue expanding the breadth and scope of these burgeoning markets.”
