In December 2012, ICAP launched its first interactive ETS map. This picture shows a world map of the status of emissions trading worldwide.
The International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) and Ecofys have launched a new
 Interactive ETS Map. This online tool compiles up-to-date information on the status and design of emissions trading schemes around the world and will be updated on continuous basis as new information becomes available.

The map currently covers 29 jurisdictions, including 8 with an ETS in force, 9 where implementation of an ETS is scheduled and 12 where an ETS is under consideration. It provides concise information on key ETS design elements of these schemes, which can also be downloaded as detailed ETS profiles, and allows to compare up to three different ETS regarding their design features.

The Interactive ETS Map was designed and developed in close cooperation with Ecofys, which also played an important role in collecting much of the underlying data on ETS. The project was made possible by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment.
The joint press release by ICAP and Ecofys is available for download below.
