On September 25th 2015, in a joint climate change statement with President Obama, President Xi Jinping announced that a National Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) will commence from 2017 in China. With the launch of the National ETS, China is expected to become the world’s largest carbon market, covering 4 billion tonnes of CO2.
Currently, as the first wholly owned foreign entity to participate in the Chinese Emission market, Shell Energy (China) Limited is registered to trade on the Chinese Emissions Exchange Guangzhou and the Shanghai Environment and Energy Exchanges.
The development of the Chinese Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and Chinese Certified Emission Reduction (CCER) market enables Shell Energy (China) Limited to utilize our experience in global emissions markets to support Chinese companies in managing exposures in the emissions markets. We are able to optimise and extract value from your CO2 portfolio, applying in-depth knowledge about the CO2 trading markets and local compliance and eligibility rules.
