Carbon trading fo LED lighting

The level of interest in carbon trading, credits and markets may depend on where one lives and what they think about the impact of carbon trading on sustainable living and on the overall economy.

According to Kyoto Protocol the intent of carbon trading and credits is to influence participating countries to develop and maintain a cap on emissions resulting in voluntary reduction in pollutants. These credits can then be bought and sold.

As governments establish legal limits on carbon emissions, entities can trade their assigned permits at a price and generate revenue or avoid exceeding legal limits and potential penalties. The Kyoto Protocol was not ratified by the US Government. However, some regional carbon trading protocols have been established with a mixed level of success.

Fundamentally carbon trading applies to any activity that increases the emissions of harmful particles. Inefficient lighting does fall within this criteria. Lowering electricity usage by using LED lighting directly and positively impacts emissions and therefore climate change.

Carbon trading and credits, similar to climate change, is a controversial topic. However, developing targeted programs to help reduce carbon emissions may gain acceptance among many.

Question: Is there a need for specific LED lighting carbon trading programs as a part of the overall approach to promoting the adoption of LED lighting?
