EU Emissions Trading System

What is the EU Emissions Trading System?

Since 2005, the EU has had a trading system for emissions. The aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by forcing companies to pay for their emissions, and thus try to get them to a more sustainable production and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The idea is that the EU sets a ceiling for how many tonnes of carbon dioxide may be released and that companies buy rights to release carbon dioxide.
