Environment Minister Viliam Turský has decided to release the contract on the sale of Slovakia’s excess carbon-dioxide emission quotas in full, Environment Ministry spokesperson Jana Kaplanová announced on Monday, June 15.

“The contract with supplements is available at www.enviro.gov.sk,” said Kaplanová for the TASR newswire.

The ministry's spokesperson also said that Interblue Group, which bought the quotas, was selected in line with the law on trading with emission quotas, as it offered the most advantageous conditions.

Kaplanová added that in the selection process, the price offer, the volume of the quotas to be bought, and the credibility in terms of meeting the commitments stemming from the contracts were taken into account.

“The sale of the surplus carbon-dioxide quotas was carried out at the end of the last year at a price agreed in the contract and in a transparent manner. We don’t have any proof of any other country selling their emissions under more advantageous conditions. Only Slovakia has released its contract in full,” she added, as quoted by TASR. TASR
