DOCUMENT INFO
Description: The Carbon Market and its Future Summary A carbon market is a market where greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions (credits) are transacted along with the rights to release greenhouse gas emissions (allowances). A credit or allowance usually implies one metric ton of CO2 equivalent (1 tCO2e). The payment for the carbon credits is made in the form of cash, equity, debt, warrant or other contributions that support/provide technologies to subside GHG emissions. Each GHG emissions trading system creates its own market and these markets are developed on different scales in different countries based on the evolution of their National/regional policies.
