European carbon prices fell toward €66 a tonne, closing in on their lowest since early March, amid expectations of industrial firms' demand for permits due to weaker industrial output across the region. The latest Manufacturing PMIs showed factory activity in the Euro Area contracted for the third month in September and at the fastest rate since June of 2020. The European Union's Emissions Trading System (ETS), forces manufacturers, power companies and airlines to pay for each tonne of carbon dioxide they emit as part of Europe’s efforts to meet its climate targets. Also, natural gas prices eased for the fourth consecutive week, reducing incentives for utilities to swap to carbon-heavy coal and lowering demand for permits. European carbon prices are more than 30% below record levels of $98 hit on August 19th, amid the possibility of EU authorities adding surplus permits to the market to limit adverse effects of the bloc’s energy crisis.
