Emission allowances

Emission allowances are tradable permits that allow companies to emit a certain amount of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere. These allowances are typically issued by governments as part of a cap-and-trade system, which aims to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions by capping the total amount that companies can emit.
