Study on the Risks of Money-Laundering in the EU-ETS

An initial study in Germany has already shown that the certificates traded in the EU ETS—just like any other financial product—are in principle, also subject to the risk of money laundering. The aim of this study is to gain a better understanding of the risks of money laundering in emissions trading across the EU.

Therefore, we are asking all holders and authorized representatives of holders of registry accounts for emission certificates to tell us about their experiences and assess how they see the situation—regardless of whether or not they themselves have any personal experience of money laundering. Even if you consider the risk of money laundering to be low or if you have no experience with the topic, you will be helping us to make the findings representative.

A link to the web-based survey has been sent to all authorized representatives by email. If you did not receive the email, please contact us.

Answering these few questions will take less than 15 minutes of your time.

This web-based survey is not collecting any data that would allow conclusions to be drawn about the companies or persons participating in it. All information and findings will be evaluated in strict confidentiality.
