Abstract

There is a general consensus that emissions of greenhouse gases need to be reduced. One possible way to achieve this is through emissions trading. While the underlying principle is rather simple, its implementation is much more complex and conflict-laden. This article traces the development of emissions trading from the Kyoto protocol and the EU emissions trading scheme to the allocation of emission rights to plant operators on national level. In Germany, important lessons have been learned from the first trading phase 2005-2007. It has become evident that the instrument´s effectiveness had, to a large extent, been undermined by too many business-friendly special rules. Will this change for the better with the revised national allocation plan for the second trading phase 2008-2012 ? - (IfL)
