The Only Source for VCM Transaction Data

XSignals market data and analytics enable market participants to measure, model, and weigh risks and opportunities with greater confidence and clarity.

XSignals uses firm bid/offer and transaction data from hundreds of project-specific credits and GEO standardized contracts traded on CBL—the leading spot exchange in environmental markets.

Neutral, multicontributor exchange data is more robust than pricing from opaque, fragmented legacy sources. XSignals generates more accurate, reliable signals in trading, valuation, and risk models.

CBL accounts for 95+% of global spot volume traded on exchanges
CBL’s spot market participants account for 250M+ tCO2e traded since 2020
$1.3B+ value of carbon credits traded in 2021 and 2022
The Most Complete VCM Dataset and Analytics Offering

XSignals data is the highest quality available in the voluntary carbon market. Our database spans a vast range of transactions, covering 500+ project-specific trades back to January 2019, and every trade in CBL’s GEO benchmark suite since inception.

The XSignals dashboard synthesizes thousands of CBL transactions into intuitive, interactive graphics. Daily trade reports provide deeply detailed data on exchange-matched and OTC-cleared transactions, keeping subscribers up to date on the latest VCM movements.

XSignals daily and historical data is ideally suited to back-, middle-, and front-office uses. It is available via a portal, APIs, and daily emails.

Multiple Registry Data from a Single Access Point

XSignals provides a single source of aggregated issuance and retirement data from the American Carbon Registry, Climate Action Reserve, Gold Standard, and Verra Registry. This streamlined access enables users to quickly analyze supply and demand across project type, country, eligibilities, and other relevant metrics, eliminating the need to log into each registry to manually record and aggregate data, saving considerable time and resources.

One Suite of Benchmarks Priced by Three Market Leaders

Xpansiv has developed strategic partnerships with CME Group and S&P Global Commodity Insights—two of the largest, most highly regarded names in global commodity markets.

CME Group trades futures on CBL’s N-GEO, GEO, and C-GEO contracts, with more than 200 million tons transacted since launch. Futures data provides a rich set of front-month and multi-year forward data that complements the spot market data available via XSignals.

S&P Global Commodity Insights provides daily assessments of carbon benchmarks via its authoritative, transparent pricing methodology. It provides settlement prices for CBL’s suite of GEO standardized contracts and CBL futures traded by CME Group.

For market participants, this triumvirate provides robust spot and futures transaction data via XSignals and CME Group, as well as assessed end-of-day pricing from S&P Global Commodity Insights—an unparalleled choice in the voluntary carbon market.
