About this book

Personal carbon trading is rapidly moving up the political agenda as recognition grows of its potential to address urgent issues of climate change and natural resource use. Under personal carbon trading schemes a carbon allowance would be allocated to each individual, to be used and traded in the same way as in national and international carbon trading schemes.

This volume presents the latest research on this topic at different scales - from the effects on the individual, communities and organisations, to its place in national, EU and global policy landscapes.
