    Emissions trading Scheme ETS has the overall goal of reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases GHG to a predetermined and lowering target in order to help combat global warming This allows governments to set an overall cap on emissions around Europe and the World and to give companies the flexibility to determine how where and when the emissions reductions can be achieved Because emissions trading uses markets and companies to make the decisions on how to deal with the problem of pollution it is often touted as an example of effective free market environmentalism The cap is set by a political process individual companies are free to choose how or if they will reduce their emissions Companies will choose the most cost effective way to comply with the pollution regulation creating incentives that reduce the cost of achieving a pollution reduction goal Companies are allocated quota allowances in tonnes of the relevant emission in this case carbon dioxide equivalent Trading in the emissions quota allows companies to emit in excess of their allocation of allowances by purchasing allowances from the market Equally so any company that emits less than its allocation of allowances can sell its surplus allowances The environmental

  • Carbon UK -  Glossary of Terms Used
    CO 2 emission for the 6 billion people is 2 tonnes per head of population and that is assuming the population remains constant So at the UK s rate of pollution we would need 5 worlds to sustain us Whatever you make of the statistics we need to achieve much now Every little helps Back to Carbon Footprint Calculator Industry and Lifestyle Emissions Some explanations towards understanding Industry and Lifestyle Emissions This part of the calculator is very complex and has to be seen as an informed assessment A large amount of work has been carried out by a variety of industry and governmental bodies to assess the individual impact without duplication with other usage calculations We have used three tonnes per capita as an average which is most probably lower than the actual Read below for more explanation if you wish The National Energy Foundation states that around half UK CO 2 emissions come from industry and commerce supporting our everyday lifestyle www natenergy org uk comment htm This means producing our food clothes consumables and maintaining our national infrastructure National average annual CO 2 emissions per capita are 10 tonnes so our average industry and commerce emissions share is 5 tonnes each Part of industry commerce provides infrastructure and resources that benefit everyone and part of it provides the goods of consumerism We may all take a share of the CO 2 produced by the former and the latter can be shared out according to consumption which is largely linked to income Public services and essential industries including health education defence agriculture and construction produce 23 of industry commerce CO² emissions Domestic consumption including cars recreation electrical goods clothing and consumables account for 40 of industry commerce emissions Trade including wholesale garages showrooms and computer activities accounts for 7 And heavy industry including mining and the material production accounts for 30 In our estimations we have already accounted for 3 tonnes of the 5 tonnes of CO² per person in our personal carbon footprint calculations So in the interest of not double counting we have allocated the remaining 2 tonnes to the employers Having read the above please therefore make the estimations you feel happy with However in a society where most products and services are provided with the help of fossil fuels it may be surprising how close the correlation is between income or more accurately expenditure and CO 2 emissions The aim of this calculator is to aid in reducing emissions Simply being aware of CO 2 factors associated with industrial products should help toward this end Back to Carbon Footprint Calculator Sequestration Carbon dioxide is incorporated sequestration Literal Meaning Removal or separation a withdrawal into seclusion into forests and forest soils by trees and other plants Through photosynthesis plants absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere store the carbon in sugars starch and cellulose and release the oxygen into the atmosphere A young forest composed of growing trees absorbs sequesters carbon dioxide and acts as a
