The EEX Global Carbon Index Family (GCI)* price shows a weighted average for the emission trading schemes (ETS) reflected in GCI Core and Extended. For each ETS a representative price of a suitable product is considered. Hereby we apply a weight corresponding to the volume of the respective ETS. Details can be found on our EEX GCI page
The EEX Global Carbon Index Core* focusses on the most liquid global markets in compliance carbon credits and comprises the following constituents which are weighted by the caps of the respective ETS.
The EEX Global Carbon Index Extended* is designed to provide a truly comprehensive picture of global compliance carbon markets. It includes all ETS worldwide, which are deemed reasonably mature in terms of ETS design and sufficiently relevant in size in terms of the total amount of emissions covered under the ETS. The EEX Global Carbon Index Extended is calculated by weighting the price of carbon contracts with the cap volume of the ETS programs from where the constituent products originate, which represents the actual ‘physical size’ of the respective ETS in the given year.
