Increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased the global average temperature (150C) leading to global warming. To fight this global warming, Kyoto Protocol was formed under the UNFCCC. It coined three mechanisms to reduce carbon emissions. Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is well accepted in India and is expected to drive the Indian carbon market. The Carbon Market in India is expected to generate 573 mn Certified Emission Reduction (CER) or Carbon Credit by the year 2012 and will grow rapidly in the future based on CDM projects as the demand for CER’s will increase form Annex 1 countries.( The report begins with an introduction to global warming and its effect on our environment. This is followed by an overview of the initiatives being taken to fight climate change like Kyoto Protocol through various mechanisms and other Voluntary Emission Reduction schemes.
It further discusses the global carbon market and provides the market size and growth. It also introduces Kyoto Mechanism globally i.e. Joint Implementation Mechanism (JI), CDM initiatives and International Emission Trading (IET) indicating some especially dedicated environmental trading exchanges around the world. Report also discusses the carbon market in India including the various CDM projects, its approval process from National CDM Authority and International Emission Trading (IET). This is followed by an introduction to the Indian trading exchange where Carbon Credit is traded, namely Multi Commodity Exchange and National Commodity & Derivatives Exchange.
