iPath Series B Carbon Exchange-Traded Notes
What is GRN?
The iPath Series B Carbon ETNs (the ETNs) are designed to provide exposure to the Barclays Global Carbon II TR USD Index (the Index). The objective of the Index is to provide exposure to the price of carbon as measured by the return of futures contracts on carbon emissions credits from two of the world's major emissions-related mechanisms (the 'mechanisms' and each a 'mechanism'). The mechanisms currently included in the Index are the European Union Emission Trading Scheme ('EU ETS') and the Kyoto Protocol's Clean Development Mechanism (the 'CDM'). The Index is composed of allocations in futures contracts on a carbon emissions credit from each mechanism included in the Index (each such contract, an 'Index Component'). The Index Components currently included in the Index are futures contracts that trade on the ICE Futures Europe exchange. The allocations of the Index to the Index Components are adjusted on an annual basis.
