Dr. Yda Schreuder        The Corporate Greenhouse
  • The book addresses the disconnect between the current climate change negotiation framework under the Kyoto Protocol and the forces in the global economy
  • The title was chosen to express that in a highly dynamic and competitive global economy, climate change policy and negotiations need to incorporate multinational corporate investment in the developing world
  • Under the current Kyoto Protocol, most emerging economies are not subjected to binding GHG emissions reductions commitments or ‘carbon constraints’ and therefore ‘invite’ relocation of energy-intensive industries
  • The book covers the impact and expected outcome of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU-ETS) and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) on corporate investment strategies.
