Global Carbon Exchange 'enables' Federal Government's link to European carbon scheme
Sydney - London: With the Federal Government announcing plans to link the Australian and European carbon pricing schemes, Wayne Sharpe, chief executive officer of electronic carbon trading platform, Carbon Trade Exchange predicts the news to be a huge step towards a truly global carbon trading market.

"This change in policy enables Australia to open itself up to the growing carbon trading markets across Europe, Australasia and the US.

"The development is everything we've been working towards for the past five years. We moved our headquarters from London UK to Sydney Australia in the belief that carbon trading would become a highly lucrative global market, and that the markets would link" said Sharpe.

"Currently our technology provides the only way Australian businesses will be able transact electronically in real time with the newly linked European carbon trading market."

"There is no better time to be onboard with carbon trading than now. A key benefit for businesses is that they can now purchase credits in Australia to meet their carbon emissions obligations in the UK and vice versa. Companies will soon be able to buy Compliance credits online directly off our custom built exchange - as they currently can for voluntary offsetting - to become carbon neutral" he said.

Carbon credits in the Regulated and Voluntary market are at very low prices from where industry, investment, banking and government bodies expect them to be over the next 5 years and beyond.
