Climate change is a global problem requiring global solutions. Governments around the world seek to develop and implement common guidelines for international efforts. Emissions Trading Schemes (ETS), also known as cap-and-trade systems, play a key role in the containment of greenhouse gas (GHG). The “International Carbon Action Partnership” (ICAP), was established as an international forum for authorities and governments implementing mandatory emissions trading schemes. The mission of ICAP is to support the global effort in the continuing development of ETS.
ICAP provides officials the opportunity to share knowledge, experiences, and relevant issues regarding the design of their various schemes. Developed entirely by Lucid, the new ICAP website in addition to further media, takes into account the different multicultural demands of ICAP members. The central attraction of the website remains the ETS-map and its connection to a database on the state of emission trading in the regions of the world.
