The climate in which companies operate is changing. In the wake of full ratification of the Kyoto Protocol new climate change policies are emerging which put companies under increasing pressure to control and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The landmark Kyoto agreement has moved business into the centre of the climate change debate as it introduces flexible, market-based policy tools which use the principles of competitive advantage and free trade to increase efficiency in climate change mitigation. The Kyoto Protocol marks the birth of a carbon market which, eventually, will allow carbon emissions to be traded on a global scale (Skea 1998). First steps towards implementing this new market have already been taken and include the launch of pilot greenhouse gas emissions trading regimes at the national and subnational level.
