The International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) is a non-profit business organization created in 1999 to establish a functional international framework for trading in greenhouse gas emission reductions. IETA’s membership includes leading international companies from across the carbon trading cycle. IETA members seek to stimulate the development of emissions trading schemes that results in real and verifiable greenhouse gas emission reductions, while balancing economic efficiency with environmental integrity.
Hydro participates in different working groups, with the special attention on committees focusing on the EU Emission Trading Scheme. Financial contributions are given as ordinary membership fees.
