3 ©2003 AgCert International LLC, AgCert™ 3 3 ©2004 AgCert International LLC Major Market Events since COP-9  European trading scheme  In January 2005 the European Union Greenhouse Gas Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS) will commence operation as the largest multi-country, multi-sector Greenhouse Gas emission trading scheme world-wide. Trading has already started  EU ETS linking directive  April 2004 – Linking directive approved by European Parliament. European firms will be able to use CDM credits (CERs) from January 2005 and JI credits (ERUs) from 2008, independent of the entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol  Russia ratifies Kyoto  June 2004 – Russia indicates that it will ratify Kyoto by or at COP-10  November 2004 – Russia ratifies Kyoto, bringing the Protocol into force February 16, 2005  Publicly announced CER transactions  Nuon and TransAlta announced large CER purchases  Mandatory Canadian reporting guidelines  Commence January 1, 2005

Out of these, 265 projects, potentially yielding 374 MtCO2e of emissions reductions towards 2012, have reached PDD level. (Source: PointCarbon – December, 2004)  In its budget proposition for the CDM Executive Board's work for 2005, the UNFCCC Secretariat based its calculation on, amongst other things, that 70 methodologies would be submitted for approval next year. It was also assumed that 200 projects would be submitted for approval in 2005

6 ©2003 AgCert International LLC, AgCert™ 6 6 ©2004 AgCert International LLC Market Sophistication  COP-9  More sellers than buyers  No standard contract  CER prices below 4 Euro  Uneasiness of whether Kyoto ratification would occur  Lack of project finance from sources other than government  COP-10  Balance between sellers and buyers  Contracts becoming more standardized, however still no industry standard  CER prices above 5 Euro  Kyoto ratified, market becoming a reality  Private industry stepping up to provide project financing  Continuing efforts by major European emitters and now the entry of the Japanese and Canadian buyer contingency
