State and Trends of Carbon Pricing

2003 - present

 

This series provides a quantitative, transaction-based analysis of the international carbon market. Since 2013 the report maps existing and emerging carbon pricing initiatives around the world, because the development of national and sub-national carbon pricing initiatives in an increasing number of countries calls for a different focus.

 

 

Otherwise known as:

State and Trends of the Carbon Market (2003 - 2013)

Mapping Carbon Pricing Initiatives (2013)

State and Trends of Carbon Pricing (2014 - present)
