Carbon Credits Investment Claims

Carbon Credits Investment Claims

Carbon Credits are often presented as an opportunity to invest directly in a ‘green’ scheme or project that generates carbon credits as a return on investment. However, the Financial Conduct Authority has identified these as often being part of a scam, as despite the fact they be bought for money, investors have continuously found they can’t sell or trade their credits.

Several firms have been highlighted in the press in recent years as targeting customers through mainly cold calling. This has resulted in several prosecutions and prison sentences, and many investors losing several thousand pounds.

If your SIPP includes Carbon Credits, then the fact these have been highlighted as worthless investments means you could recoup your investment. The provider is required to undertake due diligence on the underlying investment the customers money will be held in, so if carbon credits form all or part of your investment, it is possible you could claim this money back.
