Environmental Products

Allegro for Environmental Products

Software for risk management and streamlined compliance.

Energy market participants have tremendous potential to drive profits from trading emerging environmental products, such as renewable energy certificates (RECs), carbon emission allowances and carbon offsets. Unfortunately, for many organizations, their profit potential can be consumed by the costly and painstaking task of complying with regional and national regulatory requirements.

But it's not a matter of simply saying the regulations themselves are the problem, considering regulation is a fact of life in commodities. The problem instead lies in how an organization chooses to approach its daily operations, and too often, processes are handled manually using spreadsheets, piecemeal energy trading risk management systems or disparate tools. Managing the business this way clearly takes a tremendous amount of time, and that greatly diminishes your ability to seek opportunities in the market. Allegro is designed to give you your time back. With Allegro, energy market professionals have a platform that's capable of making every aspect of their business more efficient and manageable.

The carbon emissions and renewable energy markets are fairly new and still developing. However, Allegro has been a leader in commodity trading risk management for more than three decades. That means we're uniquely qualified to lead you through the emissions and renewables landscape, just as we've done for so many other commodities.

Built for Environmental Professionals

Emissions and renewables are unbundled from physical assets, which creates separate transaction and compliance requirements. As a result, challenges are almost certainly going to arise as trading volumes increase, since that's sure to overwhelm any poorly suited solutions that are being run. With Allegro, that won't be an issue, because it scales along with your operational needs.

By using the Allegro platform, energy companies, manufacturers and refiners will find that they have a comprehensive commodity risk management platform complemented with emissions capabilities. The result: Streamlined trades across multiple asset classes and standardized reporting for complex registry and jurisdictional requirements.

Traders, compliance departments and accounting managers want one system, one view and powerful profit potential. That's what Allegro provides - a CTRM software system for the front office, middle office and back office. Plus, it's available on-premises or in the cloud, and your IT department will embrace the flexibility they'll have to tailor and extend the software thanks to its standards-based, open architecture. But the benefits will be significant elsewhere in the organization, as well.
