Environmental policy - carbon footprint - cap and trade - emission trading scheme.

In a cap and trade greenhouse gas emission trading scheme, the carbon price is the market price of the right to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2), or its equivalent in other greenhouse gases.

Such a right is known as a carbon credit, or an Allowance.
