gcniThe UNFCCC’s Kyoto Protocol (1997) strongly grasped itself, as one of its fundamental elements, to the development of a market for carbon emissions. From that moment on, governments around the world have been increasingly pursuing market-based mechanisms to reduce CO2 emissions.
Despite the growing and recognized role of market mechanisms in climate mitigation and the call for carbon pricing in the Paris agreement by both governments and businesses, the agreement ended up making reference to carbon pricing only in a non-binding political section of the text, stating that countries "recognize the important role of providing incentives for emission reduction activities, including tools such as domestic policies and carbon pricing".
