The article reports that the emissions trading scheme (ETS) of the European Union (EU) appears to be having some effect in reducing carbon dioxide emissions into the air. Based on the findings of the European Commission, overall, pollutants from industrial installations to air and water still need to be controlled. One key finding is that carbon dioxide emissions have been decoupled from economic growth in the EU since the launch of the ETS in 2005.
