The Geography Department provides instruction and research in the broad discipline of geography, studying how physical, biological, and cultural processes shape the landscape in which we live and cause regions to differ from each other. We provide six different degree programs, an internationally known research agenda, and a long tradition of service and outreach in education and climatic data services.

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.
