Climate Commodities and Heartland Industries Partner to Turn Industrial Hemp Into a New Asset Class


DETROIT–()–Climate products and Core Industries have created a partnership to normalize industrial hemp. Their partnership will create standards that will usher in the next generation of climate-smart products.

Climate Commodities has multi-generational expertise working with all different types of commodities. Their team has experience de-risking and developing entirely new asset classes to drive global adoption. Specifically, Climate Commodities has assembled a group of stakeholders who have decades of experience in commoditizing and trading climate-smart assets.

Heartland is one of the leading producers of industrial hemp additives in the United States. Their team creates the infrastructure to help manufacturers reduce their carbon footprint and usher in the sustainable future their stakeholders need and deserve. Sustainability mandates are pushing manufacturers to find low-carbon alternatives to the raw materials they’ve relied on for decades. Today Heartland is focused on mainstreaming high performance carbon negative plastic additives.

Together, Climate Commodities and Heartland are creatively applying their combined expertise to develop a new kind of asset class that customers, banks and investors can safely participate in.

This partnership is the first step on the path to creating the next generation of climate-smart products. The leaders of Climate Commodities and Heartland see it as their responsibility to lay the foundation for 21st century manufacturing by ensuring companies have access to the carbon-negative materials needed to drive sustainable material innovation.

Commodities are essential to the dynamics of the global market. Agricultural products like corn and soybeans, along with petroleum, metals, plastics and rubber, sustain all industries. Over the past few decades, commodities have been taken for granted because markets have operated on the same key drivers. This created predictable volatility for industries and the financial institutions that supported them. But the situation in Europe is creating a commodity crisis that has reminded us how essential commodities are in today’s world.

In previous centuries, raw materials were risky investments because no one knew how to find, acquire, distribute, store, manufacture and produce them. This uncertainty opened the door for market leaders to create standards that the rest of the world would come to rely on.

Today, it is the intersection of leadership in two industries that creates opportunities for the commoditization of new asset classes. With an understanding of the complexities of new commodity supply chains and traditional commodity markets, Climate Commodities and Heartland are unlocking mass market adoption of carbon negative materials that can be used in manufacturing.

Climate Commodities and Heartland have identified this bottleneck as an opportunity to unlock the global adoption of industrial hemp. They began to identify and mitigate commodity risk by standardizing best practices, insurance instruments and other tools that helped birth the traditional products people rely on every day. Their intention is to create an investable, climate-smart asset class that can decarbonize our planet.

Industrial hemp is a strong natural fiber that has sequestered more carbon dioxide than traditional agricultural products for over 10,000 years. The only reason it looks like a new material is that it was recently legalized in the 2018 Farm Bill. Thanks to the partnership between Climate Commodities and Heartland, industrial hemp will become the first climate-smart product that will support manufacturing for generations to come.

Heartland is a bioindustrial company that designs hemp fibers as additives for plastics. Their team is building the first reliable industrial hemp supply chain in the United States to help manufacturers looking to reduce their carbon footprint. As an industrial processor of hemp materials, they work with farmers and manufacturers to ensure consistency of bio-based additive products that can be used in raw material supply chains. Heartland’s products help companies manufacture using stronger, lighter, cheaper and more durable materials. For more information, visit https://www.heartland.io.
