  1. Well and good, but do these GEO contracts result in the delivery of actual carbon credits?

    Hi John,

    Buyers of the spot GEO receive an eligible carbon credit as part of the daily settlement process. Details are available in the exchange’s Standard Instruments Program at http://www.xpansiv.com/resources.

    By the way, I am on Xpansiv’s communications team.

    All best,
    Peter
