The United States accounts for 25 per cent of the Global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. To keep pace with growing electricity demands, the U.S and developing countries are turning more to coal-fired generation with correspondingly greater GHG emissions and other forms of pollution. Therefore, it is imperative to focus on what can be done to reverse this trend. At the same time, technologies for renewable energy generation and energy efficiency are available, and increasingly, these are being deployed on a cost-competitive basis. Environmental financial trading and the markets offer a solution and a way forward through Green Trading! Environmental financial trading began in the U.S in 1995 and has since spread to many countries. "Green Trading Markets" provides valuable information on continued U.S innovations in the context of the global development of green commodity markets. It features issues such as: new ways of leveraging existing assets; new revenue streams and new opportunities for commodity trading; various approaches to improving management of greenhouse gases; and maximising renewable energy sources.
