What is an EUA?

EU Emission Allowances, or EUAs, are the credits that are allocated to the companies covered by the EU Emission Trading Scheme. Each one represents the right to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide. There are a fixed number of EUAs available to industries covered by the EU Emission Trading Scheme. EUAs are tradable. Carbon Retirement buys and retires EUAs.
