The article reports on the decision of the European Commission to revise its emissions trading scheme (EU ETS). The move came in the light of experience gained since it began operation in January 2005. The commission wants to promote the environmental impact of emissions trading by expanding it to new sectors and gases and further its global application as a key tool to combat climate change after 2013.
