EEX Zero Carbon Freight Index

    “First of its kind” info product calculates synthetic cost of carbon in Dry Freight

    EEX AG has launched its new Zero Carbon Freight Index (ZCFI). For the first time, this index enables players in the Dry Freight market to see how the cost of carbon emissions could affect freight prices. 

    The new EEX Zero Carbon Freight Index calculates the synthetic price of daily FFA time-charter rates for both Capesize and Panamax vessels, which are adjusted for the cost of carbon. Price information is taken from the highly liquid EEX Dry Freight FFA market which is then combined with EEX EUA Futures to create a daily “Zero Carbon FFA” rate which reflects a 100% carbon reduction.
