Carbon Trading

How Carbon Selling Works

Carbon markets make it possible for companies to take steps to reduce greenhouse emissions and make some money in the process.

This is essentially a cash-incentive for saving the planet, which many economists and ecologists alike agree is the real key to environmental success. Like other stocks and commodities, carbon credits and offsets can be traded on a number of primary platforms.

These include:

  • European Climate Exchange (ECX)
  • European Energy Exchange (EEX)
  • NASDAQ Climate Exchange (ECX)

Smaller businesses and individuals can also sell carbon offsets as a way to fund their project.
