Introduction

Based on the European Union's commitment under the Kyoto Protocol to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the EU has developed a comprehensive scheme for trading of CO2 emissions among large emitting companies within the EU. The EU greenhouse gas emissions trading scheme (EU ETS), which involves all 25 EU member states, started on 1st of January 2005, from which has approximately 12,000 installations across the 25 Member States of the European Union were required to surrender allowances equal to their annual emissions.

The EU ETS is the first Carbon Dioxide Trading Scheme in the world and is considered to be the most cost-effective way to reach the Kyoto target. The Community Independent Transaction Log (CITL) records the issuance, transfer, cancellation, retirement and banking of allowances that take place in the registry.

It is mandatory for each Member State to have a national registry. The number of registries that have gone online can be seen from the CITL website. These registries will ensure the accurate accounting of all units under the Kyoto Protocol plus the accurate accounting of allowances under the Community scheme for greenhouse gas emission allowance trading.
