The article discusses the potential offered by carbon trading efforts of companies to insurance companies in the U.S. The author mentions that providing coverage to corporate efforts to comply with the government's carbon regulation is an opportunity for insurance carriers because it will provide them with the foundation for pricing and innovative insurance products. She adds that these emissions compliance rules will also create a large and more diverse insurance market.
