Cap and Trade Program

The “cap and trade” program is a governmental system that places a restriction on the amount of emissions a company can produce, or a ‘cap’. The program also permits utilities, manufacturers, industries and companies to trade pollution permits, also called allowances, among themselves. Instead of using direct regulation, the premise of cap-and-trade is to control emissions through market forces – many view cap-and-trade as a tax.
