The mounting impact that CO2 emissions have on our environment is driving global authorities to increase pressures on businesses to reduce air pollution. Emissions Trading Schemes have emerged as the key method through which international efforts to mitigate further damage to the planet are being channelled.
Industrial emitters from around the globe
The biggest players across industrial sector can offer you their advice on how best to operate under the main regional emissions trading schemes, including:
US-Canada linked model
In 2016, California covered 324,069,019 tonnes of C02e
by the emissions trading model in America, and industrial emitters make up a total of 100,027 747 tonnes
of this. These industries include lime, cement, metals, paper, as well as food production facilities (excluding emissions associated with fuel processing, supply and refineries).

The Chinese scheme, which launched at the end of 2017, is set to have a dramatic impact on the regulation of CO2e across the country. As the challenges and dynamics of the system emerge in the coming months, only then will it be possible to evaluate the impact it may have on your business.
EU ETS — 11,000 energy-intensive plants regulated under the EU ETS
EU ETS legislators’ plans for post-2020 reforms will decrease the number of (or overall value/quantity?) allocations available to trade each year, which will remove a significant proportion of emissions credits from the market. This will inevitably drive up the cost to your business of emitting carbon.
Emissions covered in your sector by the EU ETS data for the financial year 2016/2017:
|Chemicals: 79,827,527 tonnes CO2e
||Metals: 141,325,407 tonnes CO2e
| Pulp and Paper: 26,997,070 tonnes CO2e
|| Ceramics: 15,951,593 tonnes CO2e
|Building Materials & Gypsum: 167,028,932 tonnes CO2e, including the processing of mineral wool, lime, glass, cement and gypsum
|Aviation: The aviation industry saw emissions of 6,144,686 tonnes CO2e eq, regulated under the EU ETS. Get updated on developments in CORSIA which are set to transform carbon trading for the aviation sector – which will regulate an estimated 2-3 billion tonnes of C02 emissions globally.
Total emissions covered by these manufacturers: 431,130,529 t C02 eq
