The article reports on the move by the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority in Pennsylvania to join the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX). The move will both facilitate greenhouse gas emissions reduction and bring about financial benefits. By joining CCX, members voluntarily agree to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions output by 4 percent by the end of 2006 or 6 percent by the end of 2010, either through actual reductions or through offset projects, such as providing renewable energy and methane destruction.
