View: The nuts and bolts of carbon-trading exchanges

In this weeks column I continue my evaluation of the global carbon-trading market as a key element in strategies to combat atmospheric pollution, global warming and climate change. Todays plan is to begin with introducing readers to some of the key items and technical terms routinely used on carbon-trading exchanges.

China, India and Brazil ahead in carbon credits

Similarities and disparities among Bric countries in different spheres of economic activity have been well-documented. But one area where the disparity is most visible is in emission trading whereby countries having commitments under the Kyoto Protocol use market mechanisms to acquire emission units from other countries and use them to meet a part of their targets. This clean development mechanism (CDM) allows emission reduction projects in developing countries to earn certified emission reduction (CER) credit by reducing greenhouse gas emissions which are then sold to industrialised countries to meet a part of the targets.
