NEW YORK, SAN FRANCISCO, SYDNEY – 27 July 2020 — XCHG, the global marketplace for Intelligent Commodities™, today announced the launch of XSignals, a component of the company’s multi-sided platform that offers unprecedented clarity in the pricing and analysis of digital, ESG-inclusive commodities (d-ESGc). These price signals—reported directly from open market activity—become benchmarks that enable vital ESG factors to be calculated into global trade.
XSignals initial customers include leading firms engaged in providing trading services to sellers and buyers of digital environmental commodities like Renewable Energy Certificates and Carbon Offsets, with a pipeline of customers from industries making long-term environmental commitments, such as the aviation industry’s CORSIA accord.
“The markets we serve are incredibly dynamic, and our customers need to know where value is being created, as reflected in real-time prices,” said Andy Bose, Head of Ecosystems and Data Partnerships for XCHG. “With the launch of our XSignals platform, we provide an unparalleled understanding of the forces moving commodities markets, giving our customers comprehensive information to inform better decisions.”
Inclusive of a broad range of asset classes and offerings, XSignals provides timely, transparent information to support trading, compliance, and risk-management decisions. XSignals translates ESG spot market price data into high-quality reference products, enabling global markets to accurately price ESG factors.
“Our aim in launching XSignals is to enhance the market’s understanding of price and value for the broad range of environmental products transacted on our exchange,” Bose said. “We’re offering unique insight into where prices are coming from, empowering a deeper understanding of where value will be in the future.”
XCHG’s first product offerings include market data—trade orders and consummated transactions—in US RECs and international carbon from the company’s spot exchange, CBL Markets. XSignals provides daily data on price, volume, time, market depth, and other key indicators that offer real-time insight into value, as reflected in the marketplace. XSignals also offers access to a historical data set that covers the last 30 months of transactions.
“In order for the global economy to transition to a sustainable trajectory, indicative price signals for ESG factors in food, energy, and materials are needed to direct capital flows over time.” said XCHG CEO Joe Madden. “XSignals provides the foundation for this transition through the consistent, reliable representation of objective value for ESG factors in commodity pricing.”
XCHG plans to deepen the XSignals offering with more capabilities, including tools for data analysis and visualization, allowing customers to both self-serve and take advantage of XCHG’s understanding of how that data will be of maximum value.
“XSignals is another step toward delivering on our mission of more accurately valuing the commodities at the base of the global economy in the century ahead.”
