Emissions Trading & Offsets

Emissions Trading & Offsets at SEI-US
CORE website


SEI conducts research on the design and implications of market mechanisms to address regional, national, and international greenhouse gas emissions, from the distribution of emissions allowances in emissions trading systems to the administration of emission offset programs.  For over a decade, we have provided innovative and influential analyses of market instruments.  We have written on the efficiency and environmental effectiveness of existing and proposed emissions crediting mechanisms, and helped to develop methodologies for assessing emission reductions.  
Current and recent SEI research activities include:
