ABSTRACT
The article reports on the approval of a new policy position by the board of governors of BOMA International on carbon cap-and-trade in June 2008. The new policy statement calls for carbon offsets to accrue to those who make the investment in carbon-reduction strategies. Cap-and-trade is an administrative approach used to control pollution by providing economic incentives for achieving reductions in the emissions of pollutants.
