CARBON PRICING: Why do prices vary by project type?

In the Q1 2016 edition of our Supply Report>> we discussed the different ways to value a carbon credit, whether by using market dynamics as a guide, pricing a project based on its cost or based on the value that a project delivers. However, pricing also varies based on the project type and can even vary within the same type of projects (see figure 1).


Climate Finance Transparency Initiative FAQs

We believe that carbon markets will strengthen and grow for everyone involved with greater credibility and transparency delivered through better access to market information.

This initiative is expected to encourage prospective buyers to enter the market by providing access to pricing data they need to inform their purchasing decisions and help project developers understand what prices they can expect.
