Free Access: The Essentials of Chinese Certified Emission Reduction (CCER)

What are CCERs and what is their significance to the country's carbon markets?

China implemented its first Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) in June 2013, establishing seven pilot schemes throughout the country with Chinese Certified Emission Reduction (CCER) as the primary offset mechanism for compliance.

More than a year since the system came into effect, data to map the impact and application of CCERs is becoming available, allowing analysis of the market situation and forecasting for the future of this mechanism. ICIS and Hanergy have worked together to create an essential tool for anyone wanting to understand CCERs, combining ICIS’ expertise on carbon markets with Hanergy’s experience in developing offset projects.

Pulling accurate data from ICIS’ China ETS Portal, the report offers an essential  guide to CCERs for traders and analysts in this developing market.
