Compliance Carbon Market

A Compliance Carbon Market is a marketplace in which a pre-selected set of actors trade carbon offsets in form of credits. Compliance Carbon Markets are regulated by a third party, normally a governmental body, on either a subnational, national or supranational level. The goal of Compliance Carbon Markets, or Emission Trading Schemes (ETS) as they are commonly called, is to optimise emission reductions through a cap-and-trade system.
