If they exceed the limit they can buy allowances from others. They can also purchase carbon offsets from outside projects that avoid emissions…Eight new carbon markets have opened since 2013…including [in] the world's top emitters China and the United States…But efforts to put a global price on greenhouse gases have been hampered as countries such as Japan, New Zealand, Russia and Canada look to weaken some of the measures they are taking…[The established schemes are]…1.
