Significant Incentives are now available to Environmental Projects via either domestic governments or increasingly through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). These may take the form of tax incentives or subsidies or certification of emission reductions via the UNFCCC with onward sale within applicable emissions trading schemes.
According to the International Energy Agency, The Paris Agreement will increase environmental investment by 36 Trillion USD between 2016 and 2050. While much of this funding will come from debt secularisation such as Green Bonds with construction equity provided by Infrastructure Funds and such like, Pre-Construction Development has generally been left to the Private Sector.
350 has been involved with 40 successful environmental projects since 2008, including the 1500 MW Coca Coda Sinclair Hydro Electric Project. 350 PPM is currently raising equity for a number of Companies many of which are Project Developers. While under The Kyoto Protocol circa 10,000 environmental projects where registered, under The Paris Agreement, 350 PPM estimates over 100,000 will be registered.
Tax treatment is dependent on an individual’s circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. No representation or warranty is given as to the availability of EIS relief / reliefs and EIS Eligibility cannot be guaranteed. Advanced Assurance from HMRC or Small Companies Enterprise Centre (SCEC) does not guarantee Investors will receive their reliefs. Even when EIS Reliefs are honoured, it is possible HMRC will rescind the reliefs at a later date. Since the requirements to fall within the EIS must be monitored at all times it is possible that if the requirements are met today, they might not be tomorrow. While 350 PPM will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure the company qualifies in the future for the three years necessary for EIS investors to attain and sustain their EIS reliefs, this cannot be guaranteed. Thus, Investors should be aware that tax treatment may vary and that their capital is at risk.
