Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (2017-12-04)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Farmer Saúl Luciano Lliuya from Peru took a further hurdle for his lawsuit against the German coal power plant operator RWE, because the relevant Higher Regional Court in Hamm acknowledged the case and did mandate the taking of evidence. This means, that the court has accepted the arguments of the plaintiff. RWE is the operator of the coal plant Niederaussern in North Rine-Westphalia, which is with 26.3 million tons the biggest German emitter of carbon dioxide and theoretical responsible on juristic point of view for that part of damages, caused by climate change. Because of the existence-threatening results of climate change in the Peruvian Andes mountains, he claims partial 17,000 Euro from RWE to accomplish with help from environmental organization Germanwatch a worldwide observed precedential case.

Last week, the quotes of European carbon pollution rights (EUA) was traded in a range between 7.45 and 7.82 Euro and closed at 7.68 Euro. This is a small loss of 0.09 Euro per ton against the previous week.
