Emissions trading is the European Union’s flagship measure for tackling climate change, and it is failing badly.

This paper illustrates the environmental elements of a strategy towards the creation of sustainable enterprises by highlighting impacts on employment of different environmental instruments and policies.

This brochure provides information to potential users of GHG standards and programs.

This publication, the IEA Carbon Capture and Storage Model Regulatory Framework (Model Framework), seeks to deal with the reality that such rapid expansion and scale-up of CCS technology raises a number of regulatory issues that need to be addressed in parallel with ongoing efforts to demonstrate the technical, safety and environmental viability of industrial scale CCS projects.

Putting a price on greenhouse gas emissions is a cornerstone policy in climate change mitigation. To this end, many countries have implemented or are developing domestic emissions trading systems.

This report presents an overview of the progress achieved so far by the EU, its Member States and other EEA member countries towards their respective targets under the Kyoto Protocol and the EU burden-sharing agreement. The assessment is based on greenhouse gas emission data in Europe for 2008, the first year of the Kyoto Protocol's first commitment period which runs from 2008 to 2012.

International transport, both aviation and maritime shipping, is a critical element of the global economy and trade. At the same time, it is also one of the main drivers of human-induced climate change.
This background paper is intended to explore the many aspects of regulating international transport emissions in the context of trade.

This briefing illustrates how HFC-23 projects under the CDM are working directly against the objectives of the UNFCCC and the Montreal Protocol, which is working to phase out HCFCs. HFC-23 emissions are clearly best addressed through direct measures outside the CDM.
