Australian Carbon Credit Units

TFS Green has been active in the Carbon and Environmental Markets since the initial Carbon Pricing Mechanism market was introduced in 2011.

Through our experience in primary and secondary renewable energy market services, and as the largest broker in Australia of Environmental certificates, the TFS Green team has established a broad audience of carbon market participants; ranging from creators and aggregators, to smaller brokers and liable parties.

After a quieter period, the ACCU market sprang to life in the latter part of 2018, with increased involvement of safeguard participants as well as anticipation of potential changes following the federal election, resulting in an increase in activity and spot ACCU prices. The surprise outcome in May’s election has since seen the spot ACCU market soften, activity levels have remained higher than those seen in years gone by.

Of note in recent times has been the emergence of forward pricing for Feb20 and Feb21 deliveries, with the markets sitting at an escalation above the spot.
