Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (25/10/2021)

Dear Sir or Madam,

The German “Kreditanstalt fur Wiederaufbau”, or “KfW” for short, was founded after the Second World War as part of the Marshall Plan to support Germany that was destroyed by the war. Since then, KfW has directed investments and promoted the implementation of the government’s plans.

In the future, according to the ideas of liberal party FDP boss Christian Lindner, KfW should be funded investments in climate protection with programs amounting to at least 50 million euros annually. The aim is to promote the transformation towards decarbonization and renewal in various sectors, including the real estate industry. Why the speed limit of 130 is not implemented, even though it saves more than two million tons of CO2 annually without any remarkable effort, remains incomprehensible.

The EU market for CO2 emission rights saw a sharp correction last week, as the EUAs broke through an important support line close to 57 euros. The December future was briefly quoted just above the € 54 mark and only managed to show prices above the € 60 mark again on Friday. On a weekly closing price basis, there was still a minus of 1.17 euros.

In the coming week, 11.4 million EUA will again be auctioned on behalf of the EU, Poland and Germany at the Leipzig EEX.
