Carbon trade and reducing CO2 emission as a crucial Environmental Concern
With a significant increase in the rate of carbon emissions, companies are rapidly adopting technologies that fulfill customer expectations and are sustainable as they help in reducing carbon emission too.
Naturally, CO2 releases into the atmosphere in numerous ways but the largest source of natural carbon emissions is from the exchange of carbon dioxide between the oceans and the atmosphere. Investors are struggling and seeking environmental sustainability in order to decrease their carbon footprint and enhance their brand value in the market.
To walk along the path of providing solutions and services that resolves all the environmental concerns is compelling companies to mitigate climate changes. This can be done better with a rapid reduction of CO2 emissions and negative-emissions technologies to help cut atmospheric concentrations. As technology has always been the key transformation value of every business, this time it is the key usage for cutting CO2 emissions.
Goals of Carbon Emissions
With multiple companies adopting technologies to cut CO2 emissions, many are on their way already to preserve their brand value in the market. As per industry experts, Microsoft is to be carbon negative by 2030 and Starbucks seeks to be “resource-positive” by 2030, including storing more carbon than it emits. Moreover, according to energy industry experts, many airline businesses wish to provide carbon-neutral domestic flights.
Even Barclays declared that it aimed to be net-zero on carbon and to “align all of its financing activities with the goals and timelines of the Paris Agreement”—after years of pressure by U.K. nonprofit Share Action to decrease it’s the financing of the fossil fuel industry.
When many different industries are aiming to reduce CO2 emissions, the greatest goal is not achieved as quickly or as it is expected. For many companies, it might not gain the growth or power of influence in their favor. Such a reduction of CO2 emissions is not achieved in a single move/step, it is rather an equipped strategy that makes small and different companies in one single industry to reduce small percentages individually to gain a huge reduction percentage overall.
Carbon market- buying and selling
Carbon pollution markets are when governments provide companies with a right to pollute along with an allowance of selling and buying such rights often called a “cap or a trade” system. Such rights and allowances are being vastly used as the largest and most controversial tools for limiting climate change.
Each business or company is granted a significant number of pollution allowances in which each is worth one metric ton of carbon dioxide. If a business uses fewer allowances than it is provided, it has the right to sell it on credits to another business, however, if a business pollutes more than it is permitted, they ought to comply and buy extra allowances from other companies that have redacted their pollution.
Such businesses are provided to comply with market pressure by seeking some cost-effective ways to lower emissions. This practice might lead to lower price risk in the market but can spike the risk of the environment with rising carbon emissions as in somewhere or the other way it grants permission to the companies to buy their way out of the reducing carbon emission approach and leads companies to state that “climate change exists”.
Also, the World Bank reports that 40 countries and 20 municipalities use either carbon taxes or carbon emissions trading. That covers 13% of annual global greenhouse gas emissions.
The trade part is that the companies can emit only as much CO2 as it is permitted and have credits for, the ones which have below their CO2 limits can sell the credits to the ones which are exceeding theirs. This way, the goal of reducing carbon emission can be reduced in slow steps and as per the service industry professionals, the utility industries are the biggest traders as they are responsible for burning too much coal and fossil fuels for oil and gas industries that emit too much carbon dioxide into the air.
The International Energy Agency recommended that no more than a third of the world’s reserves of fossil fuels should be burned by 2050. Moreover, professional experts believe that if more fossil fuels are burned at a continuous rate then global warming cannot be reduced and the CO2 level in the atmosphere can rise up to a dangerous level of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
