Climate Change Description:


The Carbon Fund for a Sustainable Economy (FES-CO2) is a climate finance tool based on the acquisition of carbon credits to catalyze the transformation of the Spanish production system. FES-CO2 will conduct its activities primarily at national level, although it can also buy credits in the international carbon markets.

FES-CO2 aims to boost the activity of Spanish companies in sectors not covered by the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) by purchasing verified emissions reductions resulting from the development of emission reduction projects.
