Prices for Human Induced Regeneration ACCUs came off slightly last week, while Generic (Landfill gas, energy efficiency) ACCU prices rose as buyers continue to see value in lower priced products, narrowing the spread between the two primary movers of the market. In particular, buy interest for Generic ACCUs is continuing to build, indicating potential for a further tightening of the HIR-Generics spread, particularly as further announcements are made regarding proposed Safeguard Mechanism reform, which we now expect in the immediate short-term. Internationally, volume dropped off in the voluntary market, with prices generally holding stable for key price categories.

This report analyses current activity in the Australian and international voluntary carbon markets, including spot and forward price dynamics, and prices by underlying project methodologies. Analysis considers Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) and voluntary offsets across key international registries including Verra, Gold Standard, the American Carbon Registry, and the Climate Action Reserve.
