About Carbon Trading
Carbon Trading is a market mechanism that The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (the “UNFCCC”) adopted on 9 May 1992. This mechanism incentivizes the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions by giving a handful of state backed entities the ability to commoditize and place a monetary value on each metric ton of Carbon Dioxide emitted in their respective jurisdictions. These assets that represent one ton of Carbon Dioxide emissions are generally called “Carbon Credits” or “Carbon Units”.
