Pre-Trade Pricing of Voluntary Carbon Credits
The Voluntary Carbon Market (VCM) is where market participants buy and sell carbon credits, which is referred to as trading.
At the pre-trade stage, two or more participants negotiate the price and all other terms involved in executing the trade.
Post-Trade Pricing of Voluntary Carbon Credits
Market participants buy carbon credits that are already issued or through a Forward offtake agreement.
These carbon credits need to be regularly revalued as assets in a portfolio, an activity referred to as post-trade.
