For too long the EU carbon allowance (EUA) market has been a difficult-to-join €750bn club. Access has largely been limited to industrial companies, banks and significant financial players. High barriers have made it difficult for the rest of the populous to own and trade these precious assets.
Tokenisation changes this landscape dramatically. Once tokenised, the EUAs are readily accessible by all members of society. Tokenisation enables a myriad of new businesses to spring up and grow, in turn fostering an ecosystem built around the tokens and EUAs.
Lawson Steele, one of the foremost experts on the EU carbon emission trading scheme (EU ETS) will help you:
- Understand the mammoth and exciting $750bn EU ETS carbon market
- Understand the fundamental difference between the EU ETS and the voluntary carbon market.
