Market-making for New Zealand carbon units (NZUs)

We all want better environmental outcomes. Here's what we do to help.

By market-making for New Zealand Carbon units (NZUs), we help New Zealand to meet its emission reduction targets at the lowest possible cost. Because we make the market, there's better liquidity of NZUs and more price transparency – so we are reducing costs for buyers and sellers across the market.

We offer a number of carbon products* including:

  • Carbon Spot
  • Carbon Forwards.
