The Australian Carbon Exchange will operate in a similar way to a stock exchange, but in the purchase, clearing and settlement of Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs) and potentially other types of carbon units and certificates administered by our schemes.
The Australian Carbon Exchange will integrate with a new and improved Unit Register that will be developed as the first stage of the Australian Carbon Exchange project.
The development of the carbon exchange will support Australian industry by increasing market transparency, including pricing, lowering transaction costs and reducing red tape. It will also accelerate carbon abatement and provide a boost to Australia's economy.
The Australian Carbon Exchange will make the trading of ACCUs simpler. This will support the ACCU market as entities fulfil their emission reduction claims and obligations. More information is available in our
Quarterly Carbon Market Reports (QCMRs), the leading source of data on Australia's carbon markets.

Expressions of interest for an Australian carbon exchange that we delivered on Tuesday 11 May 2021.
