The Carbon Credit Trading Market: Overview

The global Carbon Credit Trading market size was valued at around USD 2000.67 million in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 27.56% during the forecast period, reaching USD 9700.0 million by 2027. The authority to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide or the equivalence of another greenhouse gas is granted to the holder of a carbon credit, which is effectively an offset for the manufacturers of such gases. Reducing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from industrial activity is the major objective of the generation of carbon credits in order to mitigate the effects of global warming. A method for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases is a carbon credit. Emissions limits for greenhouse gases are determined by regulatory or governmental bodies. The quick decrease in emissions may not be financially viable for some businesses. They can thus buy carbon credits to meet the emission cap. A significant development in the global Carbon Credit Trading market is the adoption of international carbon credit by numerous nations and state governments. The European Union has widely approved the Kyoto Protocol, and as a result, the EU started the EU Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS) in the year 2015.
