Carbon Emissions Overview

Carbon markets are developing rapidly around the world. The European carbon market is currently the largest and most active. However, other markets are catching up. In 2017, China will start a national emissions trading scheme, covering more than 5 billion tonnes of emissions annually.

At ICIS, we cover the world’s most important carbon markets – including Europe, California and China – with news and analysis.

We aim to provide industry participants across the markets with all the information they need to trade carbon emissions, analyse the latest developments and access the latest news for improved insight and better forecasting.

We also report on the offset market for the upcoming national market in China’s emissions. On a weekly basis, the China carbon team assesses the fair value of Chinese Certified Emissions Reductions (CCERs), an offset unit that can be used for compliance in the National Emissions Trading System (ETS).
