This Fund Will Benefit From Climate-Change Regulations

Barron’s – The most effective way to control and reduce carbon emissions is to put a price on carbon. The $579 million KraneShares Global Carbon ETF (ticker: KRBN), which launched a year ago, holds the most-traded carbon-credits futures contracts on major markets in Europe and the U.S.. It currently reflects a weighted carbon price of $37 per ton of carbon dioxide. However, the prices are far below the level needed to accelerate a low-carbon transition fast enough. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development estimates that $147 per ton is needed by 2030 if the world hopes to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
