What is Carbon Financing? Carbon financing can be defined as financial resources provided to projects generating (or expected to generate) green house gas emission reductions in the form of the purchase of such emission reductions. In simple term, carbon finance is a purchase contracts whereby one party pays another party in exchange for a given quantity of Green House Gas (GHG) emission reductions. web: www.wasteconcern.org Payment made in different forms to abate GHG EQUITY DEBT/ SOFT LOAN IN KIND CONTRIBUTION FOR TECHNOLOGIES CASH

Carbon Market Compliance Market Voluntary Market CERVER Compliance markets generate and trade green house gas emission reductions known as Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) that are regulated and directly initiated under the Kyoto Protocols Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). Voluntary markets generate and trade greenhouse gas emission reductions that are not regulated or directly initiated by the Kyoto Protocol and known as Verified Emission Reductions or (VERs). Certified Emission Reduction (CERs): Green house gas reduction of any CDM project is measured according to internationally agreed methods and are quantified in standard units called Certified Emission Reductions (CERs). These are expressed in tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalents. Verified Emission Reduction (VERs): Green house gas reduction outside Kyoto Protocol is measured according to internationally agreed methods and are quantified in standard units called Verified Emission Reductions (VERs). These are also expressed in tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalents.

Overview of the CDM market CDM has the largest CO2 project based offset system in the world –979 registered projects by April 1 2008 –Approx. additional 2021 projects in pipeline –49 countries –134,993,328 CERs issued (certified emission reductions) –2.7 billion CERs expected to end of 2012 CDM has a legal basis in the Kyoto Protocol –Run by Executive Board (EB) answerable to KP Parties –EB back-stopped by UNFCCC secretariat with support for: Registration and issuance Accreditation of third-party validators Methodologies for emissions baseline setting and monitoring

carbon trading Present Price of CERs and VERs (Carbon Credits) Crediting Period for CERs and VERs Both the CERs and VERs are represented in terms of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO 2 e). The present price (As of 1 April, 2008): CERs : US $ 18.50-23/ton VERs : US $ 7 to US $ 10/ ton Emission reductions can be claimed for maximum ten years, without revision of the project baseline, or for a period of seven years with two extensions of seven year each, provided the project baseline is revised at the time of each extension.

Price drivers – Evolution of the CER Price (secondary market, in EUR) Source: Reuters – TFS Energy Overview of the CDM market
CURRENT TRENDS IN THE CARBON MARKET CDM experienced a strong growth (from US $ 5 b to 17b) throughout 2007. With increase in the volume of emission reduction, price of carbon credits ( CERs and VERs) is also increasing ( $ 7.5 in 2005 to $ 23 in 2008). CERs have consolidated as a reliable carbon asset class. Increasing interest in CERs for voluntary offsetting purposes may constitute another price driver in the future. Voluntary GHG market has also seen strong performance based on: National/regional/domestic initiatives Corporate social responsibility (CSR) issues

Assigned Amount Units (AAUs) – Each Annex I Party that ratifies the Kyoto Protocol has a GHG emissions limitation commitment for 2008-2012, which is its "assigned amount." If a country's emissions are lower than that amount, it may sell the unused units. Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) - These are credits issued for emission reductions achieved by a project under the CDM. CERs can be used by an Annex I Party to help meet its emissions limitation commitment under the Kyoto Protocol. The credits issued for sink enhancements achieved by afforestation or reforestation projects under the CDM are either temporary CERs (tCERs), or long-term CERs (ICERs) that are subject to provisions to protect against possible reversals of the sink enhancements. Emission Reduction Units (ERUs) - These are credits issued for emission reductions or removals achieved by a project under the JI mechanism as defined in Article 6 of the Kyoto Protocol. ERUs can be used by an Annex I Party to help meet its emissions limitation commitment under the Kyoto Protocol. Each ERU equals 1 tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2 e). Removal Units (RMUs) - These are credits issued for net sink enhancements achieved by eligible activities under Articles 3.3 and 3.4 of the Kyoto Protocol. RMUs can be used by an Annex I Party to help meet its commitment under the Kyoto Protocol. Each RMU equals 1 metric tonne ofCO2e.
