The mechanisms of Kyoto protocol based on which the obligations related with the reduction of CO2 formation and emission into atmosphere, reduction of green house effect in various spheres of industrial activities which had to be applied by the states are analyzed in the article. The article also analyzes VAT and corporate income tax taxation of consumption and sale of the emission credits which appear as a result of Kyoto protocol mechanisms.
