ICIS carbon market intelligence - prices, news and insight

We invest in getting it right

Our solutions allow instant interpretation and action. Where some providers cut down on the quality of insights and technology investments to cut costs, ICIS makes speed and accuracy a priority. Our solutions highlight risks and foresee negative developments that could impact your business.

We do not rely on fundamentals, we innovate them

The ICIS TIM (Timing Impact Model) is the first of its kind. By capturing utility hedging rates and the banking behaviour of industrials, our unique modelling forecasts the true market balance (or ‘traded balance’), enabling you to trade ahead of the curve and better understand the risk exposure of your trades.
