CIX comprises The Exchange, a digital platform that enables buyers and suppliers to trade large volumes of high-quality carbon credits, and the Project Marketplace, a digital platform for buying high-quality carbon credits directly from specific projects.
Advising DBS were Allen & Gledhill Partners Lim Pek Bur, Adrian Ang, Elsa Chen, Alexander Yap and Jessie Lim.
