4 emissions trading in practice. The cap on allowances and the establishment of a market to trade them result in a price for allowances, creating an incentive to reduce emissions. Allowances can be allocated for free-based on some combination of past emissions, output and/or perfor-mance standards-or sold, typically at auction. The latter supports transparent price formation and generates revenue for the government, which can be used for a variety of purposes, among others, to fund climate action, support innovation, or help low-income households.
To this end, there is an in-depth analysis of the two pilot sulphur dioxide emissions trading programs in Taiyuan and Jiangsu, as well as an examination of emissions trading schemes in the US and EU. Finally, the book discusses the key design elements of a multi-pollutant cap-and-trade scheme that addresses both conventional air pollutants and greenhouse gasses. The author discusses the approval of the first international trading system for greenhouse gas allowances by the European Union (EU). The features and plans of the trading scheme are discussed.
Notably for the greenhouse gas emissions problem, emissions trading seems to be very much suited to reaching the necessary reductions in a costeffective way.

Emissions trading achieves the environmental objective – reduced emissions – at the lowest cost. Cap and trade is designed to deliver an environmental outcome – the cap must be met, or there are sanctions such as fines. Allowance allocation is the process of distributing allowances to covered entities in an emissions trading system (ETS). There are two basic options for allocation: allowances can be either given away (freely allocated) or sold at auction. To do this, the ARB performed an analysis of GHG emissions in the state and created the GHG Inventory. The GHG Inventory combines estimates that rely both on state, regional or national data sources, and on aggregated facility-specific emissions reports from the Mandatory GHG Emissions Reporting Regulation (MRR).

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions trading systems evolved out of domestic cap-and-trade systems that control local pollutants. If there were a global GHG agreement with a cap, Chile would simply be one entity within the global cap-and-trade market. The aims when making these compromises are to achieve credibility of emissions reduction effort, a level of carbon price that Chile is comfortable with, and an acceptable overall impact on the Chilean economy. This tension from these compromises arises in each section below. Keywords: emissions trading, greenhouse gas emissions trading, greenhouse gases, climate change. JEL Classification: Q54, Q56, Q58.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading. Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading. trading systems have proved to be less secure environmentally and have created higher transaction costs and greater uncertainty and risk than allowance trading, leading to reduced trading. The Acid Rain Programme in the United States is the largest and most successful emissions cap and allowance trading programme in the world.

Building on this largely theoretical literature, this paper contributes to the discussion with a practical perspective and concrete policy recommendations. At the international level, I hope that this paper will stimulate further discussion about the role of emissions trading schemes in climate policy cooperation.
