Carbon into finance?

The world are discussing more and more on environmental related issues currently. It was estimated that the green economy is taking shape and will influence the US economy in the near future. Never been green economy are being given so much attention before.

US to stimulate economy through green? New workfoce and group to be focused on this area?

These are the question we need to answer. A particularly interesting stuff will be carbon finance.

Carbon finance is a new branch of Environmental finance. Carbon finance explores the financial implications of living in a carbon-constrained world, a world in which emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) carry a price.

Financial risks and opportunities impact corporate balance sheets, and market-based instruments are capable of transferring environmental risk and achieving environmental objectives. Issues regarding climate change and GHG emissions must be addressed as part of strategic management decision-making.
