The IHS Markit Global Carbon Index is the first benchmarking and liquid investable index to track carbon credits markets globally and tracks the most liquid segment of the tradable carbon credit futures markets. Constituents of the Global Carbon Index include futures contracts on European Union Allowances (EUA), California Carbon Allowances (CCA) and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), with pricing data from OPIS by IHS Markit Pricing (North American Pricing) and ICE Futures Pricing (European Pricing). The Global Carbon Index rules-based methodology is publicly disclosed and designed to be replicable. We create and administer the index in accordance with its publicly available rules and standards. Key benefits:
