The United Nations Kyoto Protocol constitutes the internationally recognised legal basis for the joint 5% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from their respective levels in 1990, by 37 presently represented industrial states. Furthermore, the agreement establishes mechanisms, which allow the committed states to target reductions in greenhouse gases as inexpensively as possible.

The EU’s Emission Trading Scheme requires over 12,000 plant operators in the current thirty states of the European Economic Area to submitt emissions allowances or credits coresponding to the amount of their CO2 emissions from the respective previous year.

The so called EU Linking-Directive enables operators of Installations that fall under the scope of the Directive to participate to a certain level as well within the System of the the Kyoto Protocol mechanisms as it is possible to the committed states of the Protocol (Annex-B Countries).
