Review of global markets in 2015 and outlook for 2016-2018.
This report presents Thomson Reuters’ assessment of the world’s carbon markets in 2015 and our forecast for 2016-2018. The aim of this exercise is to show the main trends in the major carbon (emission) markets. We collect trading data from the major carbon exchanges (ICE and EEX) and estimate the size of over-the-counter transactions (not conducted on xchanges). This gives us an estimate of the actual volume traded.
