There are early signs of a rally in the Australian Carbon Credit Unit (ACCU) market, with prices for both Generic (Landfill gas) and Human Induced Regeneration (HIR) contracts trading up slightly last week, on comparatively thin volumes. While uncertainty continues to hold back the market, voluntary demand has continued to support prices, and positive sentiment on policy reform continues to build. Internationally, some bearishness returned to the voluntary market, with prices up for lower end categories.
