Carbon Sequestration in Terrestrial Ecosystems

According to the European Union’s CO2 emission trading scheme (ETS), each affected facility is allotted a certain number of CO2 emission permits, based on its past emissions. For example, if a facility emitted an average of 100,000 tons per year during a given period, it will be allotted (on a free basis) 90,000 tons per year for the next four years.
