  • What is carbon trading? | CNBC International


    By providing economic incentives within a market-based system, many believe that carbon trading is the most effective way to fight climate change, but others argue that it will only delay society's transition away from fossil fuels. CNBC's Tom Chitty explains.

  • The EU Emissions Trading System explained


    The EU emissions trading system (EU ETS) is a cornerstone of the European Union's policy to combat climate change and its key tool for reducing industrial greenhouse gas emissions cost-effectively.

  • What is Carbon Emissions Trading?


    You want to dive deep into the world of finance and management? Visit us:

    Burning fossil fuels like coal, oil or natural gas moves cars, produces electricity or heat. Unfortunately, it also generates carbon dioxide emissions, and drives climate change.

    The European Union has decided to strongly reduce emissions. Obviously this should be done at the lowest costs to the firms and the people.

    That is where the Emissions Trading comes into play:

    The European Union fixes a carbon emissions target, then divides it into allowances, that each allow to emit one ton of CO2. These are now distributed to the firms. Now, for every ton of emissions, the firm needs to turn in one allowance. If it needs more or less, it can buy or sell them.

    So there will be a market for allowances. A firm will now think twice before it emits carbon dioxide:
    - If it is cheaper to avoid a ton of emissions and sell an allowance then the firm will do that.
    - But also: The firm may choose to emit more and just buy an allowance if that increases profit.

    Therefore, the firms will end up in a situation where they all face the same costs if they would want to avoid an additional ton of CO2.

    That means: The cheap abatement options are used – and at the same time no firm is forced to use particularly expensive ways to reduce emissions as it can always buy allowances.

    In other words: the economy has reached the emissions target in the cheapest way.

  • How carbon pricing works


    Carbon pricing has become a polarizing tactic in the fight against the climate crisis and emissions.

    Some governments promote the tax as a way to deter polluters and penalize those who contaminate the environment free of charge. While some opponents view the levy as an easy way to generate revenue, arguing the money is used for other service other than tackling climate change.

    Despite the skepticism, there is strong evidence and research that proves carbon taxes work in reducing carbon pollution.

  • Why Carbon Credits Are The Next Opportunity For Farmers


    Regenerative farming refers to practices focused on replenishing the soil’s nutrients and includes things like no-till cultivation, rotational cattle grazing, using less synthetic fertilizers and planting cover crops. In addition to making soil and crops healthier, the practices help to sequester CO2.

    Lately, the movement has gained the support of major corporations like General Mills and PepsiCo, as well as the Biden administration. Now, a number of carbon markets such as Nori and Indigo Ag are springing up to encourage farmers to participate, but challenges remain.

  • Bill Gates-Backed Carbon Capture Plant Does The Work Of 40 Million Trees


    In Squamish, British Columbia, there’s a company that wants to stop climate change by sucking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.

    It’s called Carbon Engineering, and it uses a combination of giant fans and complex chemical processes to remove carbon dioxide from the air in a procedure known as Direct Air Capture.

    Direct Air Capture isn’t new, but Carbon Engineering says its technology has advanced enough for it to finally make financial sense.

    The company is backed by Bill Gates — but also by the oil giants Chevron, BHP, and Occidental. These partnerships will bring Carbon Engineering’s tech to market by using the captured carbon to make synthetic fuels and and help extract more oil from the ground.

    Will Carbon Engineering’s technology decrease the amount of CO2 in the air, or is it going to prolong our dependence on fossil fuels?

  • The Climate Crisis: Towards Zero Carbon


    Forests burn, glaciers melt and one million species face extinction. Can we humans save the planet from ourselves? In a new film, alumni Sir David Attenborough and Dr Jane Goodall DBE, and leading Cambridge University researchers, talk about the urgency of the climate crisis – and some of the solutions that will take us towards zero carbon.

    If we are to avoid climate disaster we must sharply reduce our carbon dioxide emissions starting today – but how? Cambridge researchers describe their work on generating and storing renewable energy, reducing energy consumption, understanding the impact of climate policies, and probing how we can each reduce our environmental impact. We hear how the ambitious new programme Cambridge Zero is bringing together ideas and innovations to tackle the global challenge of climate catastrophe – and inspiring a generation of future leaders – and how the University is looking at its own operations to develop a zero carbon pathway for the future.

  • How Air Conditioning Is Warming The World


    Summer 2021 is shaping up to be one of the hottest in history, as the effects of climate change are becoming ever clearer. Naturally, that’s led to an increase in global demand for air conditioning, which itself is a major contributor to global warming. It’s a vicious cycle, but there are a number of companies working to make heating and cooling more energy efficient, and get buildings off of fossil fuels for good.

  • How The U.S. Fell Behind China In The Fight Against Climate Change


    Ever since President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Agreement, China has played an increasingly large role in the international fight against climate change. The country is now the world’s largest manufacturer of solar panels, lithium ion batteries, and electric vehicles. But while China has stepped up in these regards, it is still the global leader in carbon emissions, and burns more coal than the rest of the world combined. As President-elect Joe Biden looks to reassert American leadership in green energy and climate initiatives, it remains to be seen whether the U.S. and China can work collaboratively to address the climate crisis.

  • How Carbon Pricing Can Save the World | Johan Eyckmans | TEDxKULeuvenBrussels


    Most people probably don't spend their off days thinking about the possibilities that carbon pricing brings to solving global warming. But some do. Johan, who is one of these people, tells us why carbon pricing, although counter intuitive, is actually a very efficient policy tool to solve climate issues while increasing overall welfare for everyone involved. Johan Eyckmans studied economics at the University of Antwerp and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium. In 1997 he obtained a Ph.D. from the faculty of economics and business of KU Leuven on the incentives of nations to form international environmental agreements. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

  • Carbon offsets, explained


    Summer time! Travel time! Time for a trip! A nice long vacation! You deserve it!

    Unfortunately, your big fun trip comes with a big ol’ carbon impact — even bigger than we previously thought, according to a new study. UGH, I know. I guess that means you’re in the market for a carbon offset, which ostensibly neutralizes that impact.

    But what does a carbon offset actually do? Sometimes it grows a tree. Sometimes it lights a fire over a garbage dump. Life is full of mysteries, and we investigate all the ones pertinent to carbon offsets.

  • In Depth : Carbon Trading & Climate Change


    Our subject today is climate protection ...

    India has been in the forefront of an intense battle to protect the environment by reducing its carbon foot print
    To this end ... it has invested heavily in low-carbon intensive technologies...successfully switched to renewable energy and stepped up its efforts to protect forests.
    In the process it earned hundreds of millions of carbon credits or emission reduction certificates that are also called CERs
    Under the prevailing Kyoto Protocol climate agreement ... carbon credits are used in market-based system of Carbon Trading. Carbon trading allows countries and companies to sell their carbon credits for money. In December... the UN Climate Change Conference or COP 25 was held in Madrid. COP 25 was to have finalised rules for a new global carbon market under the Paris Agreement.
    For India ... one the goals and focus at the Madrid conference was to win the right to sell its hard-earned carbon credits .
    But the talks that concluded in Madrid on 15th December ended without agreeing on the rules for future carbon trading
    Our focus today is this whole system of carbon trading ... What was its original intention .... how did the system function over the years and what has been its impact.

  • Can carbon trading bring worlds biggest polluters to heel? | Counting the Cost


    Scientists suggest the planet may have crossed a series of tipping points making global warming unstoppable.

    The European Union has declared a climate emergency, urging nations to cut net greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050. And the United Nations believes we need to spend $48 trillion by 2050 to save the planet.

    Carbon trading is one method some are citing as a solution to the climate crisis. Many people have already encountered some form of taxes or extra charges for using plastic bags, coffee cups and even optional carbon footprint charges for flight purchases. But carbon trading is becoming a growing market for the biggest polluters.

    The value of traded global markets for carbon dioxide allowances soared 250 percent to a record high of 144 billion euros ($160bn) last year, according to Refinitiv.

    There are 45 national and 25 sub-national markets with governments trying to set a price for a tonne of carbon. Companies can buy certificates to offset their emissions. To avoid penalties, companies can buy the emission credits of others. For example, Tesla sold emission credits to Fiat Chrysler and General Motors, making $1.7bn since 2012.

    But how successful carbon trading becomes really depends on China, the world's biggest polluter. While it has been the biggest investor in renewable energy, it has stepped up spending on coal-powered plants at home and abroad.

    China has yet to launch its carbon trading market. Beijing would like richer nations to do and spend more than poorer nations for past emissions. And it looks like Europe will push for a new green deal that could see the European Investment Bank spend a trillion dollars on shifting the economy to cleaner forms of energy.

    Anthony Hobley, cochair of the advisory board Carbon Tracker, says it has been a very rocky road to get emission rates down globally and that carbon market trading usually sits alongside other policy tools like product standards and regulations around energy efficiency.

    Carbon market schemes tend to operate within a closed system, within a bubble so you set a cap for your economy and the carbon market is just one of the policy tools that you are using to drive down emissions, Hobley explains.

    The new head of the European Central Bank, Christine Lagarde, also wants the bank to take into consideration climate change when it is making monetary policy decisions.

    When you have been in the IMF and World Bank meeting in Washington a couple of weeks ago, there's a clear sense something ought to be done. The ECB is acknowledging that they want to support those green policies, Hubertus Vath from the Frankfurt Financial Center tells Al Jazeera.

    Big data and algorithms that discriminate against women and people of colour
    Every time you use your phone, computer, an app or a website, you are leaving a digital footprint that tells a story about you. And that can be used to sell services back to you.

    When you watch films or listen to music the data can be used by algorithms to make helpful suggestions for other material you may want to watch. But it can also give away your sex, age and race.

    It is that manipulation of data that is starting to raise concerns because it can be used to discriminate against women and people of colour.

    Tech entrepreneur David Hansson claimed Apple's new credit card gave him 20 times the credit limit than his wife. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak tweeted he had a similar experience with the card operated by Goldman Sachs.

    Now a Wall Street regulator has launched a probe into possible discrimination and the New York Department of Financial Services also opened an investigation into healthcare provider UnitedHealth Group after an algorithm allegedly favoured white patients over black patients.

    The so-called information economy is also becoming a huge issue for the EU. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has urged Europe to seize control of its own data from the likes of Amazon, Microsoft and Google.

    Frederike Kaltheuner, a Mozilla tech policy fellow, tells Al Jazeera that the tech industry faces large problems including a lack of diversity as well as a general lack of accountability.

    We tend to treat the sector as something that is fundamentally different from everything else. We don't expect tobacco companies to self-regulate, we don't expect ethics guidelines to guide the oil industry, and yet when it comes to tech, we tend to agree on these very fluffy standards, Kaltheuner says.

    RGGI is a cooperative effort of nine Northeast and MidAtlantic states to cap and reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants through a market-based, emissions trading program. This year, the nation's first multi-state carbon trading program is poised to expand by two additional states. Virginia has proposed its own carbon trading rule for power plants that is designed to link to RGGI in 2020. New Jersey's governor has also announced that he will bring his state back into the RGGI program.

    This presentation formed part of the event States Moving Forward with Carbon Trading: The Nuts and Bolts of Linking State Programs, hosted by Duke University, Resources for the Future, and the Georgetown Climate Center.

  • The Emissions Trading System - putting a price on carbon


    European Commission production: The EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) is a world first and a major weapon in Europe's fight against climate change. The innovative system has turned carbon dioxide emissions into a tradeable commodity. They can now be bought and sold like any other of the thousands of products traded on world markets today. The scheme works by placing a limit or a 'cap' on the amount of carbon dioxide participating installations - currently around 10,500 across the European Union - can emit every year. If an installation emits more than its allowance, it must either pay a very hefty fine or buy surplus allowances from companies that have managed to stay below their limit. The system ensures that overall CO2 emissions from the plants covered are cut in the most cost effective way.
