mis-sold carbon credits

Frequently marketed as a “green” investment, countless organisations and individuals invested money into carbon credit schemes, particularly as a SIPP investment. However, the return rate was brought into question as more and more investors discovered that they couldn’t trade or sell their credits and their investments had completely failed.


Moreover, there have been numerous scams surrounding carbon credits (as highlighted by the FCA) and many companies who sold carbon credits have since gone into liquidation.
