About this book

The carbon market is a new one, so investing in it is not as easy as it could be. The market is extremely volatile and very illiquid, to say nothing of being at the mercy of the whims of politicians. Still, that doesn't mean it isn't worth buying the shares now. Despite the surplus in the market, the price of a carbon credit is holding up pretty well.

Cracking the Carbon Code is filled with eye-opening facts that provides investors and business managers with insights and practical data that ultimately persuaded these leaders to embrace a low-carbon economy, critical information that is needed by anyone who wants to understand how to make money from "green" technology and how to avoid investments that will soon suffer from hidden carbon liabilities. Readers will learn to de-code a crucial component of this new economic driver – carbon credits, the world's first common currency.
