Evolution Markets facilitated the first trade of the ICE Nature-Based Carbon Futures contract. The trade, which involved Hartree Partners and an undisclosed counterparty, represents an important marker in the development of a listed futures market for global carbon offsets.
The trade was for 50,000 NBSCC (50 lots) for delivery in December 2022. The carbon credits were traded at $11.18. Evolution Markets brokered the transaction, which was cleared on the exchange as a print on screen and block trade. One lot is equal to 1,000 Nature-Based Solution Carbon Credits (NBSCC) where each credit is equal to one metric tonne of greenhouse gas emissions.
