The ACCU market continues to see solid traded volumes as participants digest the impact of the newly legislated Safeguard Mechanism Crediting Amendment Bill, and the implications for underlying market fundamentals. Both Human induced Regeneration (HIR) and Generic ACCU units have seen recent price rises, with volumes significantly higher than in recent weeks, while Savannah Fire Management (SFM) units traded for the first time since February. The international Voluntary Carbon Markets (VCM) saw continued volatility on the back of low liquidity, with counterparties crossing increasingly large bid/off spreads in order to transact.
