The main sources of carbon emissions, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), are categorized on the basis of greenhouse gas emissions into commercial, residential, industrial, transportation, and agriculture. The research report analyzes each of these sources of carbon emissions and presents the impact and repercussions that each has had on the environment and the market.
The report presents a basic explanation of carbon emissions and the efforts that various national institutions and bodies are undertaking in order to curb greenhouse gas emissions. It tracks the various short-term and long-term trends and factors dominantly influencing the global carbon emissions market over a period of time.
The Kyoto Protocol – adopted in Japan in December 1997 and brought into effect in February 2005 – forms the basis of the carbon emissions market study. Dividing the time after that into the first commitment period (2008-2012) and the second commitment period (2013-2020), the report discusses the dynamics and momentum of the carbon emissions market. The study proves to be a valuable asset for all those who wish to garner as much information as possible to gain competitive advantage.
Overview of the global carbon emissions market
The Kyoto Protocol was set up with the aim of fighting global warming by minimizing the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. It is after the implementation of this treaty that the carbon emissions market has gained momentum.
Based on information provided by the EPA, 82% of all U.S. greenhouse gas emission in 2012 was accounted for by carbon dioxide. Among the key sources of carbon emissions in the United States, electricity contributed the most. The combustion of coal and other fossil fuels for the generation of electricity emits a large amount of gaseous carbon compounds. After electricity, transportation accounted for a significant chunk of the carbon emissions market, followed by carbon emissions released by industrial processes.
Government bodies across the globe have realized the gravity of the situation and have begun taking numerous steps to curb and stabilize carbon emissions. Moreover, governments have also been forced to take stock of the environmental situation and begin strict implementation and enforcement of carbon emission schemes and climate policies. Considering the fact that carbon emissions have consistently been on the rise over the past decade, there are several opportunities for companies to become actively involved in climate change efforts. As a result, the dynamics of the carbon emissions market have changed rapidly.
