Past cap-and-trade programmes have tended to encourage polluters to adopt existing abatement technologies, but have generally had little effect on innovation. This paper presents new evidence that the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) may have bucked this trend and encouraged innovation rather than adoption.

The International Carbon Action Partnership’s new report finds 2017 marks a key step forward for emissions trading.

The U.S.

The purpose of this issue brief is to provide an overview of the latest movement of the emissions trading scheme (ETS), with a focus on the three key Asian carbon markets in Tokyo, China (esp. the pilots) and the Republic of Korea (hereinafter abbreviated as Korea).

This report highlights the most effective carbon-reducing policies and practices from the top 22 greenhouse gas emitting countries. The Report is inspirational, heartening, and contains useful information that could help your state, region, or country reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions and meet its Paris Agreement Pledge.

Emissions trading is now a well-established tool for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in an effort to mitigate the impacts of global climate change. By the end of 2017, Emissions Trading Systems (ETSs) will regulate more than seven billion tons of CO2e, with 19 systems operating worldwide.

The purpose of this Commission is to explore explicit carbon-pricing options and levels that would induce the change in behaviors—particularly in those driving the investments in infrastructure, technology, and equipment—needed to deliver on the temperature objective of the Paris Agreement, in a way that fosters economic growth and development,

A combination of the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) and California’s Cap-and-Trade Program can reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions and reduce dependence on oil more economically and effectively, relative to Cap-and-Trade alone.

The International Carbon Action Partnership’s (ICAP) Status Report 2017, provides a testament to the evolution of emissions trading from textbook assumptions to the real world.
