Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
About Universal Carbon (UPCO2)
Universal Carbon [UPCO2] is the world’s first tradable carbon token on a public blockchain. When you buy UPCO2, you make the world a cleaner place by supporting the sustainable preservation of the world’s rainforests.
Created by the Universal Protocol Alliance and leading voluntary carbon credit managers, UPCO2 is backed by underlying certified REDD+ carbon credits on a leading registry.
When you buy UPCO2, your transaction will be validated, secured, and certified by the UP Alliance, which includes leading blockchain companies such as Ledger, Uphold, InfiniGold, Bittrex Global, and CertiK.
We want our customers to be able to buy and sell a diverse range of assets. UPCO2 represents what some commentators see as the most important new asset class for a generation of investors seeking more than financial return - tradable carbon credits that help to combat climate change.
Integrating environmental assets into portfolios has already proved successful for some institutional investors seeking social benefits, as well as increased returns. The UPCO2 Token allows virtually anyone to participate in this growing trend.

What determines the price of UPCO2?
- World’s first carbon credit token that can be bought and held as an investment, as well as burnt to offset a carbon footprint.
- Each UPCO2 Token is backed 1:1 by a Voluntary Carbon Unit on a leading registry, which represents a one-year tonne of carbon emissions averted.
- An ERC20 token on the Ethereum Network, UPCO2 is fractional, which means you can invest as little, or as much, as you can afford to offset your carbon footprint or hold as a speculative investment and support the world’s rainforests.
- In one simple transaction, you’re taking a step towards a cleaner planet.
UPCO2 is transparently minted and substantiated on a public blockchain. You can see the assets and liabilities underpinning the Token in real-time here. You’ll always find that the Token is fully reserved.
