Deutsche Börse Monthly Carbon Report reveals lower carbon emissions in 2011


January and February emissions in Europe lower than in 2010 / impact of “Fukushima” and ensuing energy discussion on carbon emissions to be seen in following reports

Deutsche Börse: The newest Monthly Carbon Report (MCR) from Deutsche Börse – Market Data & Analytics shows that effective carbon emissions for the EU27 countries decreased versus 2010. Carbon emissions in January and February 2011 totalled 323,3 million tonnes versus 337,7 million tonnes in the same time period 2010. The impact of the energy discussion in Europe that followed the Fukushima incident will be seen in reports throughout the year.

Deutsche Börse’s Monthly Carbon Report (MCR) provides transparency for effective carbon emissions in Europe. Deutsche Börse uses a proprietary calculation model to compute the monthly emission data for all EU27 countries. The report uses data provided by large emissions contributors as well as from additional data sources. The monthly data is validated and calibrated annually with the official emission data from the European Commission. For 2010 data, the divergence between MCR data and the official numbers (published in April 2011) was only 1.8%, reflecting the high quality of the model.

“The Monthly Carbon Report (MCR) complements the official emissions data that is only published once per year. By making the information available on a monthly basis, Deutsche Börse is closing an information gap and increasing transparency for analysts, traders and company employees who are responsible for EEA related issues”, said Georg Gross,
Head of Front Office Data & Analytics at Deutsche Börse.

The newest Monthly Carbon Report from Deutsche Börse is available free of charge for visitors of the Carbon Expo Barcelona at the European Energy Exchange (EEX)/EUREX Hall 4 | Level 1 | Stand 202. Market participants can subscribe to the Monthly Carbon Reports directly from Deutsche Börse. The newest report is available every third Friday of a month.
