Dr. Sandor discussed the development of market-based self-regulatory mechanisms, with special emphasis on emissions trading as a tool to address global climate change. He focused chiefly on the activities of the Chicago Climate Exchange as a rules-based emission registry and exchange that administers a voluntary greenhouse gas reduction and trading program for North America.
