Enabling carbon markets: carbon accounting, benchmarking and disclosure 2008-2010

Doda, Baran (2019). Enabling carbon markets: carbon accounting, benchmarking and disclosure 2008-2010. [Data Collection]. Colchester, Essex: UK Data Service. 10.5255/UKDA-SN-853652

We consider the ways that carbon markets can be better supported: for example, through new forms of carbon accounting that allow investors and other stakeholders to engage in new forms of private or market-based carbon governance. In particular, we analysed the extent to which market activities allow meaningful benchmarks of corporate performance on climate change. The project yielded one peer-reviewed publication which studies the quantitative impact of corporate carbon management practices on corporate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
