The article reports on the price stabilization of the European Union emissions allowance (EUA) in December 2009, following volatility earlier in the month due to speculative activity relating to the United Nations (UN) climate negotiations in Copenhagen, Denmark. Carbon market participants argued that the negotiations provided only an indirect driver for EU carbon prices. It notes that the talks gave rise to a political agreement that does not include binding emissions reductions.
