Carboncredits.com works with partners and affiliates to provide several carbon price charts from sources all over the world… Establishing a carbon price for every ton of carbon emitted provides an immediate incentive for all polluters to improve efficiency. In fact, many corporations are already doing this internally in order to achieve compliance. The current carbon price depends on several factors.

Mandatory Compliance Market Carbon Pricing
Mandatory (Compliance) Market: Mandatory (compliance) markets are governed by national, regional, or provincial law and compel emission sources to meet GHG emission reduction targets. Because compliance program offset credits are generated and traded for regulatory compliance, they typically act like other commodity pricing.
European Carbon Credit Market
EU ETS – is the European carbon credit contract which is exchange traded. It is a Futures contract for the purposes of trading and delivering EUAs (European Union Allowance – the official name for the region’s emission allowances). One EUA allows the holder to emit one ton of CO2 or C02 equivalent greenhouse gas.
California Carbon Credit Market
Known simply as the “California Cap and Trade Program”, CCA Futures is the physically delivered greenhouse gas emissions allowances for the California Carbon Allowance (CCA) program. One CCA credit represents one metric ton of C02 equivlanet under California Assembly Bill 32 “California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006”.
Voluntary Market Carbon Pricing
Voluntary Carbon Market: Voluntary Carbon Markets enable carbon emitters to offset their unavoidable emissions by acquiring carbon credits generated by initiatives aimed at removing or decreasing GHG emissions from the environment. Companies can engage in the voluntary carbon market on their own or as part of an industry-wide program.
Aviation Industry Carbon Offset
The Global Emissions Offset (GEO) provides delivery of physical offset credits and validated instruments in the voluntary emissions markets that have been through strict verification. It allows global airlines efficient access to purchase carbon offsets. It’s a key component on the Aviation Carbon Exchange (ACE), in partnership with CBL Markets. The GEO bundles up multiple, certified, carbon credits into a single contract. Credits can be bundled as long as they are CORSIA compliant.
Nature Based Carbon Offset
The nature/land based voluntary carbon market price varies and a conservative value can be found in the GEO price.
