The fees are calculated according to the spot price on the day of the application to TheCompensators*.
The value of emissions allowances is that of the date of the application. You can check the current value of emission allowances here. All member fees are to be paid either at the beginning of the quarter, or annually by 30 June of each year. We prefer payment for one year in advance. This enables us to purchase emission allowances at the current price.
The member fee can be reduced by 50% per person if more than one person of a family are members of the association.
The membership fee for individuals and companies with residence in a country neither listed in Annex I nor Annex II of the UNFCCC can be reduced up to 50% upon request. If you wish to become a member, but cannot afford the membership fee at the moment, please get in touch with us!
The executive board has the right to refuse memberships to individuals or legal bodies. Membership fees are only due after formal confirmation of the membership.
