Environmental protection includes a number of actions and strategies that envisages to eliminate harmful processes and to restore degraded ecosystems, but also the ones that target the system by inducing changes that will allow environmental outcomes to influence economic decisions. As a result of these efforts environmental externalities such as emissions, biodiversity, waste and others could be traded. The paper reports on the state of such markets and discusses their perspectives within the crisis management that includes strategies like green economy. The markets established for externalities are already functional and record high growth rates although serious difficulties arise from the lack of competition in several cases. Global effort to implement green economy will foster such markets and there are reasons to believe that this will turn out in new and numerous jobs, especially in developing countries.
