Global Carbon Index

Benchmarking and liquid tradeable index for tracking carbon credits globally

Our Global Carbon Index is the first benchmarking and liquid investable index to track carbon credits markets globally.

The IHS Markit Global Carbon Index tracks the most liquid segment of the tradable carbon credit futures markets. Constituents of the Global Carbon Index include futures contracts on European Union Allowances (EUA), California Carbon Allowances (CCA) and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), with pricing data from OPIS by IHS Markit Pricing (North American Pricing) and ICE Futures Pricing (European Pricing).

The Global Carbon Index rules-based methodology is publicly disclosed and designed to be replicable. We create and administer the index in accordance with its publicly available rules and standards.

Key benefits:
  • Transparency – Access to public index methodologies, daily index levels, including total returns and the global price per ton of carbon, and index composition information such as constituents and weights.

  • Data Integrity – Rely on data that has undergone rigorous and comprehensive quality controls

  • Relevance – Capture the continuously growing universe of global carbon registries.

  • Flexible access – In addition, we also distribute data through our FTP service and via many data vendors.
