ABSTRACT
The article reports the proposal made by the European Commission as of March 2014 to introduce reforms to the European Union emissions trading scheme (EU ETS) starting 2021 to establish price stability and investor confidence. It claims that the EU ETS contributes to nearly 50% of the region's emissions. It also discusses the proposed federal cap-and-trade bill in the U.S., the EU allowances (EUA), and the international carbon offset credits, among others.
