Mercados de carbono têm reduzido as emissões agregadas de GEE?

  • Lucas Baggi de Mendonça Lauria Universidade de Brasília / Doutorando
Palavras-chave: mercados de carbono, emissões de GEE, antropoceno


Este artigo tem por objetivos debater e investigar se mercados regulados de carbono contribuíram para reduzir as emissões agregadas de GEE nos países que os adotaram. Analisando dados de 194 países (1990-2019), vê-se que mercados implementantes não lograram reduzir seus níveis agregados de emissões.
