Towards a Global Carbon Market - Environmentalists and Business People Call for Discussions with China, Mexico and the European Union

PARIS, Dec. 9, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - SWITCH, the Alliance for a Green Economy in Quebec, a working group made up of environmentalists and business people, is recommending that the governments of Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and California enter into agreements with China, Mexico and the European Union to ensure increased harmonization of the operating rules of their existing or future carbon markets. SWITCH believes that these markets should ultimately agree on a common set of rules. As negotiations surrounding the Paris agreement are coming to a turning point, the members of the working group would also like this agreement to recognize market mechanisms as one of the tools that can be used to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions around the world. The report titled Carbon Roadmap was submitted today in Paris to the premiers of Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba.
