Carbon emission futures, which are an integral part of carbon trading, will be rolled out when the market further matures, said the China Securities Regulatory Commission's spokesperson Gao Li at a news conference on Friday.


China's national carbon emission trading system - which adopts a dual city model by trading in Shanghai and accepting applications in Wuhan, Hubei province - is scheduled to go operational at the end of June. The development of carbon emission futures will help to enhance the efficiency of carbon pricing and better meet the market entities' need to manage the fluctuations in carbon pricing, said Gao.

CSRC will help Guangzhou Futures Exchange to conduct extensive research and complete the trading rules for carbon emission contracts. Carbon emission futures will be introduced when conditions are ripe, she added.
