Futures

According to the Environmental Markets Newsletter, the Chicago Climate Exchange has begun trading in futures that will require, for contracts expiring in 2013 and later, the delivery of greenhouse gas emission allowances that would be usable for compliance with a mandatory U.S. greenhouse gas cap-and-trade program. (If there is no program by then, then other allowances may be delivered.) These contracts allow companies to hedge today against a future cap-and-trade program.
