What we do

We buy and sell emissions trading instruments on our own account for our clients, and arrange structured emission trading transactions. 

We work and trade with over 1,000 clients in Europe, international banks, financial institutions, funds and large traders.

We trade on all the main carbon exchanges, including EEX and ICE.


Our clients and counterparties include:

  • Industrial companies which are part of the EU Emission Trading Scheme
  • CDM and JI project owners which trade CERs from projects
  • Trading houses and banks with emissions trading desks
  • Governments that buy and sell emissions instruments

Most of our clients are based in the European Union but we do business globally.

The products we trade include spot and forward trades of EU Allowances, CERs; swaps between vintages and different instruments; repos and forward transactions with advance funding for raising working capital. 

Much of our work is to do with helping clients solve problems profitably. Clients might need to raise funding, overcome technical obstacles with registries or bureaucracies, understand and reduce risks their business is exposed to. We design trades and investments to address such problems. For some case studies click here.
