An Emerging Asset Class

In the energy transition economy, many believe setting a price on carbon, and allowing that price to rise, is one of the best ways to encourage polluters to limit emissions and drive innovation in green technology.

According to the European Commission, companies covered by the European Union Emission Trading System (ETS) reduced emissions by about 35% between 2005 and 2019. In the United States, California launched its own ETS in 2013, and have since reduced emissions from sources covered by the ETS by 10% from 2013 to 2018.

Emissions Trading Systems (ETS) and Carbon Credits

In an emissions trading system - sometimes referred to as a cap-and-trade system, a regulator or government-entity sets a policy objective to reduce emissions in their region and sets a cap on total emissions allowable. Within an emissions trading system, the regulator splits the cap into carbon allowances or credits. A company regulated under the emission trading system can acquire carbon credits from the regulator, purchase through secondary markets, or reduce its emissions.

After each compliance period, regulated companies must surrender enough carbon credits to cover its emissions, or be heavily fined. Each year the regulator reduces the total number of allowances available, thereby achieving lower emissions targets.

What is a Carbon Credit?

A carbon credit is a permit allowing the holder to emit carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases. One carbon credit represents one ton of CO2.

A unique investment opportunity

According to financial market data provider Refinitiv, the total value of global carbon market reached US$851 billion in 2021.1 Energy consulting firm Wood Mackenzie estimates that the global emissions trading market could be worth as much as $22 trillion by 2050.2

ETS systems are operating in 38 countries covering over 40% of global GDP. Some of the largest ETSs globally include:

• EU ETS
• California/Quebec
• US Eastern
•United Kingdom (UKA)
