As the world grapples with climate change, Emission Trading Systems (ETS), or cap-and-trade systems, have risen as one of our most effective tools to combat this global problem. In regions under ETS jurisdiction, there has been a demonstrable reduction in carbon emissions.

However, historically high barriers to entry and the decentralized nature of these systems make it hard for investors to access the carbon allowance markets, let alone attempt to quantify the global impact of their investment into them.

This white paper covers why we believe the KraneShares Global Carbon ETF (KRBN) is democratizing access to the global carbon allowance markets while simultaneously establishing a global benchmark for carbon emissions pricing. We also outline the impact and ESG case for allocating to the global carbon allowance market, an asset class that goes beyond just a carbon-neutral investment.
