Environmental Management Account (EMA)

EMA is the leading multi-registry, multi-asset portfolio management system. EMA streamlines workflows for managing complex asset portfolios, including scheduling and other time-consuming tasks. EMA is seamlessly integrated with the CBL exchange to support pre-and post-trade position management.

  • Participants designate physical RECs in EMA, making them eligible to be offered on the CBL exchange.
  • Designated RECs are pre-cleared and “encumbered” within the system to ensure they’re available to settle trades, eliminating delivery risk.
  • End-of-day netting—choose which RECs to deliver against net shorts.
