The EEX Global Carbon Indices are designed to track the performance of major global compliance carbon markets.
There is a strong global trend towards carbon pricing. About two-thirds of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement consider using carbon pricing to achieve emission reduction targets. As of 2022, about 17.7% of global emissions are covered by emissions trading schemes (ETS) – this share has increased strongly over the past years.
With the introduction of the EEX Global Carbon Indices, EEX supports global climate ambition by providing a daily approximation for a global carbon price.
EEX Global Carbon Index Family Advisory Committee
The EEX Global Carbon Index Core and the EEX Global Carbon Index Extended are complemented by the EEX Global Carbon Index Family Advisory Committee, which brings together the expertise of key players in carbon markets from the industrial sector, finance, and international organisations.
The main purpose of the Committee is to provide guidance or share experience with respect to the identification of eligible constituents of the index to be in line with the selection criteria. EEX may consult with the EEX Global Carbon Index Family Advisory Committee to assess the eligibility of potential future index constituents as well as potential future ineligibility of existing index constituents based on liquidity and maturity of the respective ETS. The Committee may also provide advice or share experience on market developments as well as recommendations on potential changes to the rules or the inclusion of additional indices.
The Committee uses all reasonable efforts to ensure that the main objective for the EEX Global Carbon Index Core and Extended is met: the provision of a clear and comprehensive picture of price developments in major carbon markets.

EEX Zero Carbon Freight Index*
The EEX Zero Carbon Freight Index allows ship owners and charterers to understand the cost of carbon and the potential impact on freight rates resulting from the maritime sector’s inclusion in the EU ETS. Freight rates are calculated as the volume-weighted average prices for the front month FFA market, based on transactions cleared at EEX during the previous trading session (T-1). The EUA price is the last available daily settlement price (DSP) for EUA front December futures, traded on EEX in the previous trading session.
The daily “Zero Carbon FFA” rate is calculated based on:
- EEX Dry Freight FFA market
- EEX EUA Futures contracts
Index time series
For each index, the following time series are published on the EEX Transparency Platform on a daily basis from Monday through Friday except for holidays as defined in the EEX Group trading calendar published on the EEX website.
