The Australian - Carbon Club

The way CMI member Market Advisory Group founder Raphael Wood sees it, risk in the nascent carbon market is hard to measure and his aim is to help solve the problems.

In business banks lend money on receivables with knowledge you will be collecting the funds in time, but the carbon market in Australia is still small and the policy risks large, which makes this difficult.

The more information he can provide, the more conversations can be opened and the risks lowered.

Last month some 135,000 carbon units traded on the spot market at around $18.50 a tonne, compared with $66 a tonne in Europe and $36.90 in New Zealand.
