Carbon prices will become more volatile said a report by global business consultants GlobalData last week. Future of Emissions Trade said increased volatility will come as a result of the greater difficulty in forecasting carbon markets.

The report also noted the European sovereign debt crisis had drastically reduced carbon demand, hence its price in the trading market also suffered a steep decline. The failure of the international community to agree on a common goal in a post-2012 Kyoto framework has also damaged the confidence of the private sector, and played a key role in lowering the carbon price.
