How we think

Vertis Blog

The world of environmental commodity trading is very varied: it involves policy and politics, science, finance, markets and technology. We try to cover topics for digging deeper in this blog, including the challenges of Phase III in the EU ETS, strategic and technical topics of emissions trading, development of the energy efficiency and corporate news.

The Trading Room

This blog hopes to help you time your trades better through technical analysis of the carbon market.
