ABSTRACT
The article reports that carbon offset providers in Great Britain have deferred their application for credits under the government's carbon offsets scheme pending acceptance of voluntary emissions reductions (VER) in 2009. The entry notes that the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) excluded VER from its quality assurance code for carbon offsets and limited its approvals only to certified emissions reductions issued by the Kyoto Protocol or the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EUETS).
