Nov. 29 (Bloomberg) -- United Nations emissions offsets
fell to a four-month low after the board overseeing the world's
second-biggest carbon market decided to hand out credits to 12
projects cutting a potent greenhouse gas hydrofluorocarbon-23.
UN Certified Emission Reductions for December 2010 lost 4
percent to 11.75 euros as of 7:35 a.m. in London, the lowest
level since July 29. European Union allowances for December fell
1 percent to 14.93 euros.
The UN Clean Development Mechanism executive board said in
a statement dated Nov. 26 that it approved issuances to some
HFC-23 projects that it had previously placed under review. It
also said it decided to "place on hold and revise" the
methodology of awarding credits to HFC-23 projects amid
allegations of misuse.
