HOW DO WE GET CARBON CREDITS ?
Carbon credits are a key component of national and international emissions trading schemes. They provide a way to reduce greenhouse effect emissions on an industrial scale by capping total annual emissions and letting the market assign a monetary value to any shortfall through trading. Credits can be exchanged between businesses or bought and sold in international markets at the prevailing market price. Credits can be used to finance carbon reduction schemes between trading partners around the world.
There are also many companies that sell carbon credits to commercial and individual customers who are interested in lowering their carbon footprint on a voluntary basis. These carbon offsetters purchase the credits from an investment fund or a carbon development company that has aggregated the credits from individual projects. The quality of the credits is based in part on the
validation process and sophistication of the fund or development company that acted as the sponsor to the carbon project. This is reflected in their price; voluntary units typically have less value than the units sold through the rigorously-validated Clean Development Mechanism.
The New York Times recently ran an article claiming that "carbon will be the world's biggest commodity market, and it could become the world's biggest market overall." Rest assured, it will be. Currently valued at over $30 billion, the carbon trading market is set to skyrocket to over $1 trillion as the price of carbon becomes more and more valuable.
And it's possible to get a piece of this infant industry right now.
Early investors can play the burgeoning carbon market by:

2. Investing in companies that are making extra cash by reducing their

racing to reduce their emissions?
It's because of the huge profits that stand to be made.
