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).
