Climate Change

Climate change is today accepted as being one of the biggest problems being faced on a global scale.

Starting from the end of the 1980s, studies have been made under the leadership of the United Nations and international organisations in order to reduce the negative impact and pressure of humans on the climate system, and as a result, the United Nations Climate Change Environmental Agreement (UNCCEA) was established in 1992, followed by the Kyoto Protocol (KP) in 1997. While the UNCCEA and KP were on the one hand bringing legal regulations directed at restricting and reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases caused by humans, the international trade in emissions began to be more and more effective in the area of the movements of technology and capital, on the other.
