China launches carbon emissions trading system
China's economic planner, the National Development and Reform Commission, recently launched a carbon emissions trading system. Under this mechanism, companies can trade carbon emission permits like they are commodities, in the hope that it will reduce carbon emissions. Under the Paris Agreement, China has promised to cut carbon emissions by 60 to 65 percent per unit of GDP by 2030, compared with 2005 levels. In the meantime, it would boost its use of non-fossil fuels, making them account for 20 percent of China's energy consumption. While other countries' carbon markets struggled, can China's system buck the trend? Wu Changhua, China/Asia Director, Office of Jeremy Rifkin, and former Greater China Director of the Climate Group; Michael K. Dorsey, co-founder and vice president of Strategy-US Climate Plan; and Isabel Hilton, CEO and Editor of chinadialogue.net, share their views.

Organized Crime in Charge of EU Carbon Trade, Europol Says
Report by Raymond Frenken, EUX.TV Script: First, there was ClimateGate - the scandal with hacked emails suggesting scientists have abused data for research on global warming. Now, another international climate scandal is emerging that may have an impact on the talks in Copenhagen. Europes top police body Europol, the closest thing that European Union has to the American Fbi, has exposed a massive fraud with the unions official market in carbon credits, the Emission Trading System. The fraud is costing tax payers in a handful of European countries more than five billion euro - 7 billion dollars - and raises doubts about the effectiveness of carbon trading as a measure to curb emissions. Europol director Rob Wainwright issued the following statement: These criminal activities endanger the credibility of the European Union Emission Trading System and lead to the loss of significant tax revenue for governments. Police authorities in Belgium, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom have worked together in what Europol calls a process to identify and disrupt the organised criminal structures behind these fraud schemes. Lets see if we can explain the scheme, using this graphic provided by Europol. The fraud is based on a what is tax experts and investigators call as a Carroussel fraud with missing traders. This carroussel generates money by stealing value added tax from governments. The first step of the criminals is to open a trading account with a national carbon registry, in the name of a newly registered company. From there, this company buys EU emission allowances in another country on one of the six official carbon exchanges in Europe. After that, these emission allowances are moved to another country, and subsequently sold to an unregulated broker in yet another country. This broker then charges VAT on these transactions but does not pay the collected VAT to the tax authorities. Just before the tax authorities realize that this company owes them huge amounts of VAT, basically a period of a few months, the company and its owners disappear. A new company is set up, using other front men, to repeat the carroussel. Crime rings that run such schemes can have several dozen or hundreds of companies whose real owners are difficult to trace. Basically, this type of fraud is possible because European countries continue to disagree on single market tax legislation. Carroussel fraud is a constant feature in the European cross-border market and until recently only happened with shipments of valuable goods such as iPods or flat-panel tvs, not with carbon credits. Europes tax commissioner, in an interview with EUX.TV, has estimated the damage from these carroussel frauds at more than 60 billion euro per year as Euroean finance minister continue to disagree on effective measures to fight this fraud. The Emission Trading System system was set up in 2005 as part of Europes efforts to curb emissions of greenhouse gases. That topic now is at the top of the agenda at the UN Climate summit in Copenhagen this week and next. This unprecedented and massive fraud is likely to prove a major embarrasment for EU negotiators.

Tom Goldtooth: Carbon Trading is “Fraudulent” Scheme to Privatize Air & Forests to Permit Pollution
https://democracynow.org - In South Dakota, the energy company TransCanada says it shut down part of its pipeline Thursday after a rupture spilled 210,000 gallons of oil in a field near Amherst. The pipeline carries a highly polluting form of oil called “diluted bitumen.” This comes amid a new report titled “Carbon Pricing: A Critical Perspective for Community Resistance,” which exposes the dangers of carbon trading, a scheme in which major companies purchase carbon credits from countries who agree to plant trees or protect existing forests. We speak with one of the report’s co-authors, Tom Goldtooth, executive director of the Indigenous Environmental Network, and Isabella Zizi from Richmond, California, home to a massive Chevron oil refinery. Chevron has said it will purchase carbon credits to offset increased pollution from a recent expansion of the Richmond refinery.

004 How Companies Use Carbon Markets To Reduce Emissions
Companion article at ecosystemmarketplace.com/articles/voluntary2016/ Hello, and greetings from Cologne, Germany, where we’re wrapping up two intense weeks that began a few dozen kilometers north of us, in the former German capitol of Bonn, where climate negotiators have begun the process of activating the Paris Agreement. Unfortunately, that meant I got swamped, which led to an unplanned two-week hiatus on this podcast, and I do apologize for that – but if you’ve been following Ecosystem Marketplace, you know we haven’t been idle. Yesterday, we released our annual survey of the voluntary carbon markets, which takes stock of what individuals, corporations, and governments have been doing to offset their greenhouse-gas emissions until the Paris Agreement takes effect – which could happen as early as next year.   Earth. We broke it. We own it – and nothing is as it was: not the trees, not the seas, not the forests farms or fields, and not the global economy that depends on all of these. But we can restore it – make it better than it is – more resilient – more sustainable. But how? Technology? Geoengineering? Are we doomed to live on a bionic planet, or is nature itself the answer? That’s the question we explore each week on Bionic Planet, a podcast of the Anthropocene – the new epoch defined by man’s impact on Earth. Today, our focus is voluntary carbon markets. Green-minded companies use them to reduce their carbon footprints by offsetting those greenhouse-gas emissions that they aren’t able to eliminate by, say, re-tooling their factories or switching to renewable energy. Individuals use them as well – often to offset their travel emissions – as do governments. New research from Ecosystem Marketplace shows that these three groups used voluntary carbon markets to reduce emissions by about 84 million tons of carbon dioxide last year alone, but the real story isn’t the volume – which is still too small to change the world – but rather, how those offsets are used in ever-more complex and effective emission-reduction strategies. CLIP: Hamrick That’s my Ecosystem Marketplace colleague Kelley Hamrick, who spent a good chunk of the last six months on the phone with thousands of carbon market participants cobbling together the latest “State of the Voluntary Carbon Markets” report, which is entitled “Raising Ambition” to reflect the ever-increasing emission-reduction targets embedded in the Paris Agreement. You can download the report at ecosystemmarketplace.com/articles/voluntary2016/ (repeat) Voluntary carbon markets provide a way for companies to reduce their overall emissions by, say, saving endangered forests, or planting trees, or financing the construction of wind farms. They’re not to be confused with “compliance markets”, which are imposed under a cap-and-trade regime like the one in California. If you heard our two earlier episodes focused on the need to create a price on carbon, you know the goal of such a price is to force companies to reduce the amount of greenhouse gasses they pump into the atmosphere. Voluntary markets are different – they’re not so much an “incentive” as they are an “enabling mechanism” – because companies and individuals that use them aren’t doing so to comply with the law, but to do the right thing. In fact, our research shows that companies that buy offsets are usually also the ones that have already done the most to reduce their emissions internally – and they’re using offsets to get to zero net emissions – or at least try to. Offsetting, in other words, is almost never a stand-alone strategy, but rather one component in a larger, more involved emission-reduction approach. I had a brief chat with Kelley right after she posted the report, and asked her how voluntary offsets usually fit into a company’s emission-reduction program. CLIP: Hamrick   So, who are the buyers? Ultimately, they’re companies that want to reduce their greenhouse-gas emissions, but sometimes they’re brokers as well, and they can also be a new breed of consultancy that helps manage emission-reductions. Let’s meet some now. CLIP: Intros Did you hear what he said about price? If you heard our cost of episodes on the need for a price on carbon, you know that 3.3 dollars is nowhere near the “social cost of carbon” –or the  damages that carbon dioxide causes once it’s in the atmosphere. Now, I know what I said before – about voluntary carbon offsets being an enabling mechanism more than an incentive, and that’s true, but one way they enable companies to reduce is to create an “internal price” on carbon – a price companies can use to push greenhouse-gas emissions into the corporate consciousness. That just doesn’t happen at $3.3 per ton, so lots of companies buy low externally and then sell high internally – but that leaves...

AUSANTE - Emission Trading Scheme
Register: http://www.ausante.com/signup_now A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for or to offset an emission made elsewhere. Carbon offsets are measured in metric tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent (CO2e) and may represent six primary categories of greenhouse gases. The categories include: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), hydroflourocarbons (HFCs), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). One carbon offset represents the reduction of one metric ton of carbon dioxide or its equivalent in other greenhouse gases. There are two markets for carbon offsets. In the larger, compliance market, companies, governments, or other entities buy carbon offsets in order to comply with caps on the total amount of carbon dioxide they are allowed to emit. This market exists in order to achieve compliance with obligations of Annex 1 Parties under the Kyoto Protocol, and of liable entities under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. In 2006, about $5.5 billion of carbon offsets were purchased in the compliance market, representing about 1.6 billion metric tons of CO2e reductions. In the much smaller, voluntary market, individuals, companies, or governments purchase carbon offsets to mitigate their own greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, electricity use, and other sources. For example, an individual might purchase carbon offsets to compensate for the greenhouse gas emissions caused by personal air travel. Many companies offer carbon offsets as an up-sell during the sales process so that customers can mitigate the emissions related with their product or service purchase (such as offsetting emissions related to a vacation flight, car rental, hotel stay, consumer good, etc.). In 2008, about $705 million of carbon offsets were purchased in the voluntary market, representing about 123.4 million metric tons of CO2e reductions. Offsets are typically achieved through financial support of projects that reduce the emission of greenhouse gases in the short- or long-term. The most common project type is renewable energy, such as wind farms, biomass energy, or hydroelectric dams. Others include energy efficiency projects, the destruction of industrial pollutants or agricultural byproducts, destruction of landfill methane, and forestry projects. Some of the most popular carbon offset projects from a corporate perspective are energy efficiency and wind turbine projects. For more Info Visit: http://www.facebook.com/ausante.biz

Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN Last year the world spewed out 32 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide emissions Now imagine if this pollution had a price. Enter the idea of carbon trading, a concept created by American economists. It’s known as cap and trade. If a company emits less than its limit, it can sell its permits to other companies: that’s the trade. Over time, the total number of permits is reduced…. and in theory it becomes more expensive to pollute. In 2005 the European Union introduced the world’s first carbon trading scheme with mixed results. Partly because there were too many permits given out... and the value of each one dropped … making it very cheap to pollute. Worldwide there are around 30 countries and 20 cities or regions that have chosen this path. representing 8 per cent of emissions. Now China, the biggest polluter on the planet has announced plans for its own national cap and trade scheme. It will be, by far, the world’s largest.

Carbon Credit! (The first superhero who smokes)
Once upon a time, not so long ago, world leaders gathered to make an agreement to fight climate change. They met in Japan and agreed to the famous Kyoto Protocol. A principal feature of the Protocol turned out to be carbon trading: a magical solution to curb CO2 emissions. It was presented as a flexible market mechanism able to tackle climate change in a cost effective way. The magical elements were carbon credits, who reached the status of superheroes once their full potential was discovered. Governments and companies could buy carbon credits but most of the time they just got them for free. If they had credits or permits left they could sell them and make nice profit out of it. Either ways the result would be the same, as if by magic, carbon emissions would reduce rapidly, it was predicted. No political action was needed, the market would take care of it. Expectations were high but unfortunately the magic never happened and promises couldn't be kept. The biggest carbon market, the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, has crashed, carbon trading hasn't reduced CO2 emissions and it hasn't encouraged investments in sustainable energy infrastructure sufficiently. To the contrary, to offset their CO2 emissions companies and governments have invested in destructive projects in the South. The only ones benefiting from this system are polluting companies who have made millions by selling their free carbon credits and traders speculating on the fluctuation of their price. Reasons enough to change strategy one would think, right? Well think again. Despite the massive evidence of their failure, carbon markets are still promoted as a solution to fight climate change. Carbon markets are being expanded to other regions and similar mechanisms are being set up to trade not only clean air but also forests, wetlands and other elements of nature. Sixteen years after Kyoto carbon markets will still be central during the next climate talks in Warsaw (UNFCCC COP 19). The fairytale is kept alive by those who want us to believe in it. It is being told again and again in a slightly different version every time. But the big success factor remains no matter what: Carbon Credit! (The only superhero who smokes).

Rescuing the EU Carbon Market -- EU-ETS Video infographic
http://www.iiea.com/environmentnexus/energy The EU is at the forefront of the fight against climate change. But the EU Emissions Trading Scheme -- Europe's flagship tool to reduce greenhouse gas emissions -- is floundering. See this previous IIEA blog. The market is awash with surplus allowances, which has led to a depressed carbon price. This does not create the right incentives for low carbon growth. But how is the market malfunctioning? What is the diagnosis? And how can Europe rescue the ailing scheme and deliver effective climate policy? Our latest production combines motion infographics and interviews with key stakeholders to explore the problems in the EU Emission Trading Scheme and the future of EU Climate Policy. Interviewees include Sanjeev Kumar, Senior Associate with E3G (Third Generation Environmentalism), Susan Shannon, Senior EU Affairs Manager at Shell and Neil Walker, Head of Energy and Environmental Policy at IBEC (The Irish Business Employers Confederation). Negotiations on the ETS The European Commission's short-term rescue bid is currently being negotiated by the European Parliament and the Council. The Irish EU Presidency is hoping to broker a deal on this issue in the first half of 2013. The European Parliament's ENVI committee is set to consider the issue at its meeting on 19 February 2013. The rapporteur's report by ENVI Committee Chairman, Matthias Groote (S&D, Germany) gives an indication of where this debate is going (see here.) While the report is broadly supportive of the European Commission's position on amending the EU-ETS, the report also proposes constraints on the Commission's right to intervene in the carbon market by proposing that intervention should only happen "in exceptional circumstances" and stresses that intervention should be seen only as a interim precursor to longer-term structural reform. Some proposals for longer-term reform are already on the table from the Commission. But are these solutions enough? And are they tackling the right problem?

THE 21st Century Scam--Carbon Credits Trading
How Carbon Credits Trading Works by Benton Bain Carbon offsets are a strange concept. Let me show you in layman terms how it works: Al Gore goes to an Italian restaurant and eats a loaf of garlic bread, a plate of lasagna, a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs, an extra large pizza with seven toppings, a couple bottles of expensive wine and a large assortment of pastries. As a result, he puts on 10 pounds. But he is deeply concerned that mankind is getting too fat. So he pays 10 peasants in Asia $10 each to eat nothing for a week. Although they are already skinny, by starving themselves for a week, they each lose a pound. As a result, after a week, mankind is weight neutral. Al Gore weighs 10 pounds more, 10 Asians weigh 10 pounds less -- and Al Gore is given another Nobel Propaganda Prize for his leadership in keeping mankind's obesity in check. Of course, this example is not quite fair to Gore because that imagined humanitarianism actually costs him cash money. In the real carbon offset business, he looks forward to being paid for directing other carbon consumers to invest in carbon neutral projects through Generation Investment Management which Gore is the founder and chairman. So Gore will profit from mankind's misery. I'm glad to see he finally has developed the capitalist instinct (like his daddy did with Occidental Petroleum and Armand Hammer). When Gore personally is using carbon, as when he flies in a carbon belching Gulfstream jet, one of his companies would pay some other guy not to fly or plant a tree or do something to offset Gore's carbon belching so that Gore can feel elated about himself and live as he wants. Under the TRILLION DOLLAR Kyoto Protocol's trading scheme to determine the offset of emissions and the amount of CO2 that needs to be paid for will be controlled by the same organization that controlled the pittance BILLION DOLLAR Iraqi Food for Oil SCAM with Saddam, the anti-America/anti-capitalist corrupt United Nations!!! Socialist French President Jacques Chirac said in 2000 the UN's Kyoto Protocol represented "the first component of an authentic global governance."

Personal Carbon Trading Market
I will talk about a unique and potentially very popular policy to combat global warming. It's called Personal Carbon Trading Market. Here is how it works. Every person gets a carbon allocation (we'll call it carbon share) equal to America's per person carbon emissions. Businesses have to buy these carbon shares from the people on the open market. For all practical purposes, the only buyers will be utilities and oil companies. People can sell their shares at the pump, through their utility bills, and get a discount. Or, they can go to a bank and exchange their carbon share for cold cash. Thus, implementing this will be easy. Here is what so great about this? 1. A vast majority of people stand to make real money because their carbon emissions are below the per person emissions. Remember, the per person emissions are skewed higher by big consumers like corporations and the super-rich. The less your carbon consumption, the more money you will make by selling your carbon shares. 2. The cost increases will be barely noticeable. But the discounts at the pump, on the utility bill, or the cash at the bank will be very clear and real. People will view conservation not just as spending less money, but as making extra money. 3. How much extra money you make will depend on how much energy you save. Generally, the poor will make the most money. This is more fair. Today, even though the poor have the lowest carbon footprint, they are the most vulnerable to extreme events. We saw this with Hurricane Katrina. Last and most important, the more aggressive the carbon reduction target, the more the value of the carbon shares, and the more money in people's pockets. Yes, a virtuous cycle. So, why is no one pushing this?. 1. Many Republicans are in denial about global warming, and don't want businesses to spend anything at all to reduce global warming. And the Democrats are sometimes too fixated on taxes, when we should focus on incentivizing smarter behavior. So, pushing this policy must become a people's project. I urge you to send this to all your friends so that we can have maximum views and turn the heat on the politicians to save our earth from overheating. I am Vinay. I am running for Richmond City Council.

The Emissions Trading System - putting a price on carbon
European Commission production: "The EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) is a world first and a major weapon in Europe's fight against climate change. The innovative system has turned carbon dioxide emissions into a tradeable commodity. They can now be bought and sold like any other of the thousands of products traded on world markets today. The scheme works by placing a limit or a 'cap' on the amount of carbon dioxide participating installations - currently around 10,500 across the European Union - can emit every year. If an installation emits more than its allowance, it must either pay a very hefty fine or buy surplus allowances from companies that have managed to stay below their limit. The system ensures that overall CO2 emissions from the plants covered are cut in the most cost effective way.

Korea to revitalize carbon emissions trading scheme
탄소배출권 과다이월시 불이익..한국정부 탄소배출 줄이려 노력 As an industrial powerhouse, Korea is dedicated to doing its part to fight climate change. And on Wednesday the government announced new plans to encourage companies to make more use of the country's carbon emissions trading scheme. Lee Unshin explains. Committed to the Paris Agreement on fighting climate change, Korea is seeking to encourage companies to trade carbon emissions rights with each other. The Ministry of Environment introduced the Korea Emissions Trading Scheme in late 2014. It allocated carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emission rights to over 500 companies for the period of 2015 to 2017... using what are called Korean Allowance Units, or KAUs. The most KAUs were allocated to the power generation and energy industries. When companies exceed their quota, they can buy extra permits from other companies and avoid a fine. In recent months, however, the price of emissions rights have spiked due to higher demand and limited supply, which has slowed down market activity. In February, the price per ton of emissions rose to more than 23-and-a-half U.S. dollars, up nearly 38 percent in just two months. The result was a sharp drop in turnover. In January, 384-thousand tons worth of emissions rights changed hands, down from last year's monthly average of nearly a million tons. Some companies had extra emissions rights, but, instead of trading them,... carried them over to the next term. The government's plans revealed Wednesday include providing less KAUs next year to those holding on to massive stockpiles. Plus, starting in 2018, companies will be able to trade emissions rights they've acquired overseas through other countries' programs. New ways of trading emissions rights are on the way, too -- like monthly auctions and swaps. The country's finance ministry said that stabilizing the trading system will reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions -- with the ultimate goal of using it to cut emissions by 37 percent by 2030.

China's carbon emission trading system | Pro-reunification party members detained in Taiwan
China has launched a carbon emissions trading system. Under this mechanism, companies can trade carbon emission permits like they are commodities, in the hope that it will reduce carbon emissions. While other countries' carbon markets struggled, can China's system buck the trend? Four officials from Taiwan's pro-reunification party were detained shortly after returning from the Chinese mainland. Experts discuss the consequences of the one-China policy.

S.Korea embarks on carbon trading system / YTN
Starting today (Monday), South Korea embarks on a carbon trading system. The Korea Exchange (KRX), the nation's main bourse operator, and the environment ministry in charge of the new business say that they expect the launching of the system to help the country to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Nearly 530 local companies will join the carbon-pollution cap-and-trade system, aimed to meet global efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions to 30 percent below business-as-usual (BAU) levels over the next five years. South Korea ranks as the seventh or eighth producer of greenhouse gases in the world, accounting for 1.9 percent of global emissions in 2012. ▶ 기사 원문 : http://www.ytn.co.kr/_pn/1207_201501121036451182 ▶ 제보 안내 : http://goo.gl/gEvsAL, 모바일앱, [email protected], #2424 ▣ YTN 유튜브 채널 구독 : http://goo.gl/Ytb5SZ [ 한국 뉴스 채널 와이티엔 / Korea News Channel YTN ]

Carbon emissions trading rights to be traded
[anchor] The government submitted a bill to the National Assembly on a carbon emissions trading system in April. The move is set to be followed by a carbon emissions trading pilot program in the business and power generation sector. Here's the report. [report] In coming months, companies will be able to measure the financial value of greenhouse gas emissions cuts and purchase or sell remaining emission allowances. If companies' emission cuts exceed their targets, they can sell their emission surplus to other companies, which would help reduce costs related to emission reductions and ultimately bring in extra profit. This is the carbon emissions trading system designed to induce cost-effective greenhouse gas emission reduction. The companies that emit 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually will each have an upper limit of 9,500 tons for emissions under the assumption that a reduction of one ton will cost 9,000 won. If the companies each reduce 1,000 ton and sell the emission surplus of 500 tons for a price of 20,000 won, they will make 1 million won in profit, after deducting a 9 million won cost for the 1,000 ton reduction. The government plans to introduce a pilot program for such a carbon emissions trading system and exchanged views with business officials on their reactions. [sync - Park Young-jun, Vice Minister of Knowledge Economy] To achieve the emission reduction target cost-effectively, the government has recently been pushing the emissions trading system, the most powerful regulations on greenhouse gas emission cuts and the bill has been submitted to the Parliament. For the allocation of emission rights to the participating companies, the government plans to use the emission cut targets given during the pilot project to help in energy target management. It plans to minimize burden on the companies by linking the new system with the energy target management system while also preparing for the introduction of the emissions trading system. The business sector agreed to voluntarily participate in the emissions trading system and make other efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, because the system could trigger side effects, such as reducing competitiveness, experts said that it is necessary to closely review the cases in other countries and localize the system to be well suited to the South Korean market. [Interview - Lee Hong-yeol, Executive Vice President / Honam Petrochemical Corp.] The business sector understands that a carbon emissions trading system should be introduced some day but it should be adopted as we closely watch the cases in other countries, such as China, India and Europe. The government plans to establish a consortium of industry and market experts to analyze cases of overseas countries and the effect of the system on the industries there. The business and power generation sectors account for 68.4 percent of the national greenhouse gas emissions which is why the government plans to reinforce support for voluntary carbon reduction activities. 온실가스 배출권 사고 판다 [앵커멘트] 지난 4월 정부는 온실가스 배출권거래제에 관한 법안을 국회에 제출했습니다. 이를 계기로 산업발전 부문의 배출권거래제시범사업이 실시될 계획입니다. [리포트] 앞으로는 기업이 절감할 수 있는 온실가스 배출량을 값으로 책정해 사고 팔 수 있게 됩니다. 목표치를 초과해 감축시키는 배출권에 대해서는 이를 판매할 수 있어 감축에 드는 비용절감은 물론 수익도 발생할 수 있습니다. 바로 비용효과적으로 온실가스 배출감축을 위한 배출권거래제입니다. 연간 1만 톤의 이산화탄소를 배출하는 기업에게 9천 5백 톤의 배출 상한치가 할당되고, 1 톤을 줄이는데 9천 원의 비용이 발생한다고 가정합니다. 배출권거래제에 따라 1천 톤을 감축시키고 잉여배출권인 5백 톤을 1톤당 2만원에 판매한다고 가정했을 때, 1천 톤에 대한 900만원의 비용을 빼면 백만 원의 수익이 생기는 것입니다. 정부는 이와 같은 배출권거래제 시범사업을 실시하기로 하고 산업계와 함께 대응체제 마련에 대한 의견을 나눴습니다.

Carbon Credits: Bum Life Special
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_credit Carbon credits are a key component of national and international emissions trading schemes. They provide a way to reduce greenhouse effect emissions on an industrial scale by capping total annual emissions and letting the market assign a monetary value to any shortfall through trading. Credits can be exchanged between businesses or bought and sold in international markets at the prevailing market price. Credits can be used to finance carbon reduction schemes between trading partners and around the world. There are also many companies that sell carbon credits to commercial and individual customers who are interested in lowering their carbon footprint on a voluntary basis. These carbon offsetters purchase the credits from an investment fund or a carbon development company that has aggregated the credits from individual projects. The quality of the credits is based in part on the validation process and sophistication of the fund or development company that acted as the sponsor to the carbon project. This is reflected in their price; voluntary units typically have less value than the units sold through the rigorously-validated Clean Development Mechanism[1].
