International Emissions Trading Association
The International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) states on its website that it supports the "objectives of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change" and "the establishment of effective market-based trading systems for greenhouse gas emissions by businesses that are demonstrably fair, open, efficient, accountable and consistent across national boundaries. It also states that it supports "maintaining societal equity and environmental integrity while establishing these systems."
Submission on Carbon Capture and Storage
In June 2008 IETA made a submission arguing that Carbon Capture and Storage should be included in the Clean Development Mechanism under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). In its submission IETA argued that "delaying its use risks large GHG emissions to the atmosphere that could have been captured and stored, thereby reducing our ability to tackle global climate change" and that "CCS is a proven technology. The oil and gas industry has gained considerable experience over several decades relating to the capture, transport and storage of CO2 and the monitoring of CO2 injected in geological formations". (See Clean Development Mechanism and Carbon Capture and Storage for more details).
