CO2 Website


Climate Change is a symptom of our unsustainable methods of production and ways of life. Lacking system innovation and optimization cause increased, dangerous CO2 emissions. Climatologists and systems scientists call for a change of the economy at least until the end of the next decade. Otherwise future generations will have to bear unforeseeable results of global warming.

Individual tradable emission quota - CO2 cards - could be an effective political instrument which engages the citizens financial interest in CO2 reduction. The expansion of the current emission trade system on the private sector could be a decisive step.

The concepts of individual tradable emission quota are explained. Furthermore you wil find answers to 30 questions on CO2 emission quota, the advantages of a CO2 card and its international feedback.
