Nov. 25 (Bloomberg) -- The European Union said a decision
to ban some offset credits from Jan. 1, 2013, would not
"significantly" boost carbon prices
The impact on compliance costs in the EU emissions trading
system should "not be significant because the EU allowance
price is mostly determined by other factors and sufficient
alternative credits remain available," according
to an impact statement published today on an EU website.
