Thanks to the Paris Agreement carbon trading programs are proliferating all over the world. More than 40 countries are relying on carbon markets to reduce their emissions. This sends a positive signal to other 100 countries which are considering or developing cap and trade programs. To achieve the ambitious limits, set in Paris Agreement the price of carbon must be at much higher levels therefore the allocation of carbon credits to carbon markets will have to be more and more restricted.
According to many analysts, carbon price will reach $50 per ton of CO2 by 2025, almost tenfold increase in 7 years. This makes an emission allowance a worthwhile long-term investment. London-based fund managers Schroders recently published the study where they estimate that carbon prices will have to increase to well over $100 a ton to incentivize decarbonization on the scale needed to meet the 2C goal of the 2015 Paris Agreement.
