Climate-conscious consumers and the buy, bank, burn program

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Manipulation of European Union emission trading systems (ETS) by the buy, bank, burn program compensates unregulated emissions while regulated sectors carry a large part of the burden. This distorts the balance between regulated firms and non-regulated projects, so parties outside the EU ETS can be virtuous at the cost of others.
