Our latest Carbon Weekly report has now been published, reviewing activity in the Australian and international carbon markets for the period 5 – 9 Feb 2024.
Lumpy buying interest saw the ACCU market trade higher last week, with HIR again re-testing recent highs, while Generic ACCUs excluding Avoided Deforestation (No-AD) traded up to a weekly high of $36/t before retracting back to meet Generics later in the week. The first quarter continues to prove the strongest in the ACCU market, with total spot volumes on track to match the record high from Q1 2023, following the release of the Safeguard Mechanism policy position paper. With the holiday period behind us, and typical buying interest at quarter end expected to come, further trading activity may provide a signal that the market has broken away from the weaker period over 2H 2023.
RepuTex’s Carbon Weekly report analyses recent activity in the Australian and international voluntary carbon markets, including our ACCU spot price assessment by method, spreads, forward activity, traded volumes, and key market developments. Analysis considers the Australian market along with international registries including Verra, Gold Standard, the American Carbon Registry, and the Climate Action Reserve.
