Emission Credit and Trading

Baker Botts has extensive experience in emissions trading programs across multiple air pollutants, and continues to apply that experience in the relatively new arena of carbon credit trading and offset programs. We assist clients in developing, contracting for, and trading renewable energy credits in the existing markets, such as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative in the east and California’s Cap and Trade program in the west. We help clients to maximize the value of their environmental investments and to think broadly about the potential market benefits of new infrastructure and resource investments, both inside and outside the borders of the United States.
