The Expected “CER Multiplier” Proposal Threatens CDM Investments

The expected “CER Multiplier” proposal has affected the global carbon market. Under the proposal, the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) marker participants will be required to buy two tonnes of CO2 to cover carbon emissions equalling one ton. This proposal is welcomed by environmentalists but has threatened the investors in the global carbon market. It has also resulted in an unusual increase in the EUA-CER price gap, which increased to around €2 in May, 2010. This has caused certain unpredictable changes in the carbon market. The expected proposal might increase the focus of European carbon investors towards EUAs in the coming months, thus leading to new trends in the global carbon market.
