That, to me, totally flies in the face of a whole chunk of the good they have done.
To big business, money rules all.
A business wont be happy in having to buy carbon credits, so this focuses a business into reducing their carbon costs. It then subsidises businesses who are providing a way for end users to reduce their carbon cost, incentivising a lower carbon economy.
In theory - the end user should win with lower overall carbon. Of course, the market needs carefully managed...
With the announcement today that China is aiming to be carbon neutral by 2060, the world is trying to go in one direction - the filthy ICE makers will go out of business unless they embrace low carbon alternatives.
