Image: Clearing the airThe agreement on climate change reached at the G8 summit in July 2005 gives new impetus to action the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

This publication considers how a number of market-based policy frameworks, of the form encouraged by the G8, rate against the twin objectives of:

We would welcome your contribution to the debate.
