Carbon Finance - World Bank

World Bank

The World Bank has created the World Bank Carbon Finance Unit (CFU). The World Bank CFU uses money contributed by governments and companies in OECD countries to purchase project-based greenhouse gas emission reductions in developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The emission reductions are purchased through one of the CFU's carbon funds on behalf of the contributor, and within the framework of the Kyoto Protocol's Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) or Joint Implementation (JI). The World Bank is particularly supportive of Program of Activities (PoA) development.

Famous quotes containing the words bank and/or world:

    People get a bad impression of it by continually trying to treat it as if it was a bank clerk, who ought to be on time on Tuesday next, instead of philosophically seeing it as a painter, who may do anything so long as you don’t try to predict what.
    Katharine Whitehorn (b. 1926)

    The world is not merely the world. It is our world. It is not merely an industrial world. It is, above all things, a human world.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)
