  • New innovative digital solution provides access to selected Voluntary Carbon Credits from Citi Commodities’ portfolio and Univers’ EnOS Ark platform.

Univers, a leading decarbonization technology player, and Citi today announced an innovative software solution that enables organizations to seamlessly purchase Voluntary Carbon Credits (VCCs).

The project provides 850,000 fuel-efficient cookstoves free of cost to rural households in Vietnam. The cookstove project, will be the flagship project of Univers’ innovative new proposition.

According to Univers, this solution can help the customer offset part of its 2023 & 2024 Scope 1 to 3 carbon emissions, thereby demonstrating its strong commitment to the low-carbon transition.
