The options and futures market for Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) came to life late last week, with over 400,000 units transacted in a flurry of trades as buyers look to capitalise on current supply dynamics to lock in low prices and protect against further price increases.

In this update, we summarise last weeks action in the ACCU spot, options and futures markets.
