Escalating global warming is threatening the very existence of life on our planet and must be contained. The 2015 Paris Agreement sets an absolute upper limit of 2°C on increase in global mean temperature by the end of this century. It also calls for ample efforts to limit the warming to a less risky 1.5°C.

A 2018 IPCC report titled Global warming of 1.5°C has estimated the amount of CO2 the world can emit to stay below 1.5°C global warming over pre-industrial levels. The world had already emitted about 2,200 Gt of CO2 from the dawn of the industrial revolution till 2017.

The world emitted 37 Gt of CO2 in 2018. If we include other greenhouse gases (GHGs) such as methane, it emitted more than 53 Gt of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) in the same year.

Carbon markets are dealt with under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. Two important parts of Article 6 are: o Article 6.2—Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes o Article 6.4—Sustainable Development Mechanism.
