A carbon credit is a tradable certificate or permit which enables a company to legally emit a single tonne of carbon dioxide or equivalent greenhouse gas. Carbon credits can then be traded between companies who are conscious about their carbon footprint, allowing the production of such gases to be offset. Carbon credit fraud is the term used to describe illegal activity taking place around these transactions. This can take the form of VAT fraud where VAT is illegally reclaimed, or credit fraud through the false certification of documents. In some cases, carbon credits can be stolen or fraudulently created. If you are accused of engaging in this type of fraud, Wilford Smith’s solicitors can provide the highest quality legal expertise, working tirelessly to develop top-level strategies to support you in your defence.
