Regulators and governments worldwide have been using carbon pricing as one mechanism to discourage greenhouse gas emissions since the early 1990s. However, carbon prices – and the mechanisms for implementing them – vary widely between jurisdictions, making it difficult to measure and analyse carbon pricing globally.

To fill the information void, researchers at the Monash Centre for Financial Studies (MCFS), in partnership with carbon market specialists C2Zero and SparkChange, have constructed the world’s first global Real Carbon Price Index (RCPI). Based on mandated carbon prices set by regulators and governments, the RCPI provides a weighted composite measure of the physical price of carbon across all jurisdictions.

Tune into this recorded webinar to learn about the evolution of carbon prices over time, trends in carbon pricing across various regions, companies' internal carbon prices, and the differences between the voluntary and mandatory carbon markets and more.
