Emission allowances

  • Achieve EU-ETS compliance

ABN AMRO services clients that are subject to mandatory participation in the European Union Trading System (EU-ETS). We provide access to the compliance market and are committed to support our clients’ needs to meet these current and future carbon CO₂ compliance obligations.

We offer OTC European Union Allowance (EUA) solutions via our Carbon Environmental Solutions desk within ABN AMRO Global Markets and on-venue via ABN AMRO Clearing.

EU Allowances

Buying and selling of European Union (EU) Allowances, generically called EU Allowances, carbon credits or carbon certificates with immediate payment and delivery, allowing the owner to emit one tonne of greenhouse gas emissions such as CO₂.

EUA Forward

An EUA forward is an agreement to buy allowances in the future at a predefined time and price. This gives you the ability to secure future supply, to lock in a price and to limit price exposure.
