Clouds Rest

Clouds Rest is an investing platform built to price environmental externalities in order to mobilize more capital to fight climate change. We operate at the intersection of environmental markets and technology—combining our decades of experience in environmental markets with the power of distributed ledgers and tokenization.


Decades of Experience.

Clouds Rest is a technology-driven financial services and investment firm focused on environmental assets.

We were founded by a team of investors and technologists with decades of experience in environmental markets. We’ve traded carbon, RECs, RINs, and LCFS; built project development companies; and pioneered many early and novel pathways under various compliance programs.

The world economy produces over 52 gigatons of CO2e emissions1. At $50 per ton, that’s a $2.5T annual liability that needs to be properly priced, hedged, and ultimately mitigated. We believe the first step is to accurately account and price these emissions, and we’re building the infrastructure to do just that, what we call the Climate CloudTM, an institutional investment platform built to price, trade, and custody environmental assets, leveraging the benefits of blockchain and tokenization.
