Legal Regulation of Carbon Pricing: The Domestic and International Market

Control, Oversight and Regulation
The launch of Russia’s cap-and-trade programme is steadily approaching. The Sakhalin pilot scheme – marking a transitionary step in the programme – will begin to operate this year. There is little doubt that the new foreign policy environment will affect Russian carbon regulation, so we must again ask ourselves what the Russian ETS will look like. What business prospects exist in the new carbon credit market? What experience should Russia draw upon? Can Russia’s programme be integrated with other countries’ emissions trading systems?
