Carbon Trade

A market proposed by the Kyoto Protocol in which each country participating receives a limit on the carbon emissions it and companies operating in it are allowed to produce. Countries (and/or companies) may buy and sell the emissions limits assigned to them. Carbon trade is intended to be an attempt to reduce overall carbon emissions while still allowing companies that may have difficulty doing so to have an outlet for transition. It is also called emissions trading.
