Public meeting, via videoconference, of the CFTC’s Energy and Environmental Markets Advisory Committee. On June 3, 2021, EEMAC met to discuss how the derivatives markets can facilitate the transition to a low-carbon economy, including the status of carbon reduction through cap-and-trade and other carbon trading market mechanisms. The discussion at the June 3rd meeting included a proposal to form an EEMAC subcommittee to provide a report to EEMAC on guiding principles for the design of the derivatives and underlying cash markets for environmental products, such as carbon allowances and offsets, that are used to address greenhouse gas emissions. At this meeting, EEMAC will further discuss this proposal and vote whether to recommend that the Commission approve the formation of a subcommittee.
