The UNs Kyoto Protocol is a treaty which is a part of their Framework Convention on Climate Change. It committed 37 industrialised countries and the European Community to binding targets in an effort to limit their degree of human-emitted release of greenhouse gases, one of which being carbon dioxide. The Kyoto Protocol was a landmark step in fighting global warming through a reduction of greenhouse gases. It has shown results. The collective reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in a collection of richer countries within the treaty called Annexe I (including the Russian Federation and Australia, European countries, and the US-which remains to sign), is around 5%. To increase the risk of these Annexe I countries meeting their 2012 emission targets, they were given flexible mechanisms. This permitted the trading of their emissions. Assigned Amount Units are now bought and sold from a series of trading schemes across countries. Many countries opted to sell excess units (each being equivalent to a ton of carbon dioxide). These are then traded privately and internationally.

As a result of the Kyoto Protocol carbon has been commoditised; paving the path for an exciting new sales industry, complete with carbon trading jobs. Carbon trading jobs are fresh, exciting and seek to help companies who may find it cheaper to purchase carbon credits to offset their excess than buy new machinery or employ other mechanisms to reduce their carbon emissions that year. In contrast, other companies may find it cheaper to offset emissions through more eco-friendly projects, and are left with excess units which can be sold to be paid for its eco-makeover. Carbon trading jobs involve negotiating between such companies, on international and domestic levels. The price of carbon fluctuates, allowing for an exciting work in a dynamic marketplace. In addition to the excitement which the role offers and your assistance in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, carbon trading jobs are well paid and offer longevity in a market which is there to stay.
