The Inlandsis Fund was established by Fondaction and Coop Carbone in 2017 with a shared commitment to harness markets to address climate change. The Fund is capitalized with $20 million from Fondaction.
Inlandsis finances carbon emission reduction and sequestration projects in government regulated carbon markets in North America. We currently operate in Alberta, California, Ontario and Quebec, and will expand as other jurisdictions establish carbon markets.
Inlandsis offers a unique financing solution for carbon offset and allowance projects, providing upfront financing for capital and operating expenses, as well as carbon project development costs. Inlandsis takes construction, operation and carbon market risk in return for a share of the carbon credits from a project. The Fund is comfortable with a variety of financing structures, including prepay agreements, and is able to quickly close investments. Inlandsis generally provides up to $2 million per project and $4 million per sponsor, and is open to larger investments.
Our growing portfolio includes over 20 projects in Alberta and the Western Climate Initiative carbon markets in California, Ontario and Quebec.
