The trading of carbon dioxide (CO2) emission allowances, or permits, has been established in recent years as one of the primary mechanisms for tackling global warming and climate change. The European Union (EU) has taken an important initiative in this direction by establishing in 2003 the first ever mandatory cap-and-trade system for CO2 permits: the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS). The purpose of this paper is to initially provide a brief introduction to the EU ETS and subsequently assess its operation during the years 2005-2010 from a financial market perspective. The in-sights gained through this analysis are particularly important not only for policy makers and market stakeholders but also for the growing community of the so-called ‘carbon’ investors.
