Publisher's Synopsis

Emissions Trading Systems (ETS) have been hailed as a game changer for the evolving climate crisis. This book provides an in-depth analysis of China's carbon ETS, including its legal and policy frameworks, carbon market mechanisms, and international and comparative implications.

With nine cutting-edge topics divided into three thematic parts, this comprehensive book probes the essential concepts, contemporary research, and key elements of carbon emissions trading in China. Multidisciplinary in scope, the book draws on insights from law, policy, economics, environmental management, and geopolitics, to provide a comprehensive and nuanced analysis of the development of carbon emissions trading in China. Placing China's carbon ETS within the broader context of international efforts to address climate change, it provides a comparative perspective with international value.

This book will be an essential resource for scholars and researchers of international and comparative climate law and policy, environmental management, economics, and climate politics. It will prove an indispensable guide for students of Chinese law, climate law, environmental policy, and comparative environmental law. Practitioners, policymakers, and government officials working in climate governance seeking the state-of-the-art of the development of ETS in China will also benefit greatly from its insights.
