Factor

Markets

Financial instruments are an efficient tool for achieving carbon reduction objectives.  Among them, carbon markets have made it possible to set a price for CO2 emissions in numerous countries and geographical areas, as is the case with the European Union Emission Trading System.

Within this context, since 2004, Factor CO2 has been offering technical consulting and market services, for both governments and international organizations, as well as for over 400 companies. 

Our services range from the design and creation of these market schemes, to technical support in the operation or carrying out of emission allowance trading transactions. 

  • Design of market schemes at the national level.  We have developed projects in different developing countries, implementing market schemes and cap & trade schemes for both carbon assets and white certificates, under multilateral programmes such as the World Bank's PMR, or initiatives promoted by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
  • Market instruments for the development of reduction projects and mitigation actions.  We have spent over 10 years working with schemes such as the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), Programs of Activities, and Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs). We have also worked under voluntary and domestic schemes (VCS, climate projects, etc.). Furthermore, we have experience designing and implementing emissions Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) systems.
  • CO2 market consultancy.  Our extensive knowledge of EU ETS guidelines has enabled us to offer tracking plans, annual emissions reports, or new entrant submissions for over 200 clients, always with high quality support. Additionally, we develop optimization projects for free allocation and establish internal procedures for CO2 management. 
  • Emission allowance trading. Within that context, we carry out trading transactions with EUA, EUAA, CER, and other carbon assets. In addition, we design and carry out purchase plans and structured finance transactions.
