What are Carbon Markets?

In 2022, there was $909 billion traded in mandatory carbon markets
Carbon markets are similar to any other commodity market; they are an arena for the exchange of assets tied to the price of a specific commodity, in this case greenhouse gas emissions. Beginning in the late 1990s, carbon markets emerged with the goal of reducing carbon emissions by putting a price on the negative externality cost associated with emitting greenhouse gasses. Since that time, carbon markets have evolved to the point that they now represent a growing investment opportunity for traditional and impact-oriented investors. At their core, carbon markets have one common goal: to use market dynamics to efficiently price the cost of emitting greenhouse gasses and incentivize market participants to lower their carbon footprints.
