Since Tuesday, a new exchange-traded commodity issued by HANetf in cooperation with SparkChange is tradable on Xetra and via Börse Frankfurt.
The Spark Change Physical Carbon EUA ETC offers investors direct access to carbon dioxide emission certificates of the European Union (EUA) for the first-time by replicating the spot price of physical emission certificates. The ETC is physically hedged by holding the emission allowances.
Emissions allowance trading serves as an instrument to mitigate climate change and is used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Companies that emit carbon dioxide (CO2) must hold certificates equal to their emissions by obtaining them directly from the EU or buying them from other companies. The number of emission certificates emitted by the EU is limited.
