Offset Use Across Emissions Trading Systems

Teaser + metatags

As market-based instruments, emissions trading systems are inherently flexible, as entities can decide to reduce their own emissions or buy emissions allowances from the market. Carbon offsets (or simply ‘offsets’) are a tool to further increase flexibility in reaching climate targets under ETSs, as they offer sectoral and geographical flexibility for jurisdictions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions outside of the scope of their ETS.

    Emission Trading and Carbon Tax: Two Instruments, One Goal (Brief 9)

    Teaser + metatags
