Carbon Trading in Zimbabwe


Zimbabwe has taken a significant step towards a greener and more sustainable future by introducing groundbreaking legislation, Statutory Instrument 150 of 2023, which regulates the thriving carbon credits trading industry. Carbon credit trading is an effective mechanism that enables countries and organizations to offset their carbon emissions by investing in clean energy projects and initiatives. By trading these credits, we can promote environmental protection and contribute to global efforts in fighting climate change.

This move by the Zimbabwean government demonstrates its commitment to tackling climate change and promoting environmentally sustainable practices. Additionally, it presents exciting opportunities for businesses to invest in renewable energy, build green infrastructure, and contribute to a cleaner and greener Zimbabwe.

Suppose you have been running a carbon project before the enactment of the law or have exciting ideas to develop a carbon project in any sector in Zimbabwe. In that case, you are welcome to explore this opportunity. The SI provides guidance to all interested parties. Together, we can positively impact our environment and secure a better future for generations to come. Let’s spread the word and support this initiative.
