More Ukraine Carbon Trade

Ukraine was allowed to resume participation in international emissions trading under the Kyoto Protocol following its suspension in October, the National Environmental Investment Agency said.

"This means that Ukraine has resumed participation in international trade in greenhouse gas emission reduction units and will be able to use the mechanisms of Joint Implementation in full," the Kiev-based agency said.

Ukraine has sold more than 100 million tons of Assigned Amount Units, or AAUs, since 2009, the most of any developed country. Ukraine was suspended from emissions trading in October after the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change uncovered flaws in the country's official estimates of its emissions before 2008.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
