The flexibility mechanisms of the Kyoto Protocol enable developed countries and companies to allocate emission reductions achieved abroad to their emission reduction targets. There are three types of project-based mechanisms: Clean Development Mechanisms (CDMs), Joint Implementation (JI) and New Market Based Mechanisms (NMMs). The certificates resulting from these mechanisms can be traded.
The "Emissions Reductions Achieved Abroad: Quality, Quantity and Carry-Over" fact sheet provides detailed information about the quality criteria, the quantities that can be allocated, the carry-over of certificates from the first to the second commitment period (carry-over or banking) and the criteria for issuing Letters of Approval (LoA) by the FOEN under the flexibility mechanisms.
It has information for companies participating in the Swiss Emissions Trading Scheme and other actors in CO2 trading (e.g. brokers, traders).
