ABSTRACT
The article discusses the flaws in the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) set up by the European Union (EU). The figures released by the British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs revealed that companies covered by the EU ETS scheme emitted 251.1 million tons of carbon dioxide in 2006. The government proposed a mandatory national scheme, the Carbon Reduction Commitment, based on similar principles to the EU ETS that require commercial organizations to reduce emissions.
