The report includes comprehensive training material for companies on corporate preparation to carbon pricing which has been divided into 12 chapters. Each chapter was written by a representative from 10 IETA member companies with active carbon market participation. Each chapter focuses on a key aspect of preparing for compliance or involvement in a carbon market. Many of the examples are drawn from experiences with involvement in the Kyoto carbon markets (CDM, JI), the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS), and the California carbon market.

To date, IETA’s BPMR initiative has held 7 industry-to-industry dialogues on emissions trading and carbon pricing best practices. These dialogues have taken place in China, Kazakhstan, Korea, Mexico, and South Africa. Materials from those dialogues and tips for carbon market preparation are available on the B-PMR website at

The report includes chapters on carbon pricing preparation, ETS readiness, allowance and offsets management, and trading best practices.
