The article highlights the statement of Great Britain's Carbon Trust that national allocation plans (NAP) submitted by member states for the 2008-2012 phase of the European Union's Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) could seriously undermine the credibility of the ETS. The comments from the Carbon Trust, which works with Great Britain's businesses and the public sector to cut emissions and develop commercial low-carbon technologies, are based on an assessment of the latest NAP.
