What is a voluntary carbon market?
What are compliance carbon markets?
Compliance carbon markets are established and operated by states, countries and regions. They mandate various compliance entities under the respective programs to reduce their emissions, using a market mechanism commonly referred to as a cap-and-trade structure. Under this framework, carbon allowances are “capped” each year and compliance entities are required to reduce their emissions over time. Any compliance entities that are not able to fulfill their carbon reduction target are able to buy allowances if they are over their allotted levels. Companies that reduce emissions through innovation and efficiencies can sell those allowances. The most mature and established compliance markets are the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS), Western Climate Initiative (WCI) which includes the California and Quebec markets and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). Each of these markets can be traded via regulated futures exchanges such as Nodal Exchange for North American markets and EEX for European carbon. These contracts are NOT offered on TVCM but are tradeable through Joule.
