Transparent trading: Taiwan's 60-day countdown to carbon credit commerce

In a significant stride towards environmental responsibility, the Ministry of Environment (MOENV) of Taiwan has unveiled draft regulations governing domestic carbon credit trading. This marks the commencement of a 60-day public consultation period, underlining a commitment to transparency and public involvement.

Trading on the TCX platform, established in August, will involve set-price trading, auctioning, and negotiated trading. Sellers engaged in voluntary emissions reduction projects, and buyers, compelled by the Climate Change Response Act, are pivotal players in this exchange.

The unit of trade is a metric ton of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), with emissions converted based on global warming potential. An interesting feature of the regulations is that once carbon credits are traded and transferred, they cannot be re-traded or re-auctioned, closing potential loopholes.
