The Carbon Mechanisms Review (CMR) is a specialist magazine on cooperative market-based climate action. The CMR is published by the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy on behalf of the German Environment Ministry (BMU).
Carbon Mechanisms Review critically appraises carbon market developments and contributes to the carbon market debate with analyses, opinion articles and background information. It primarily focuses on the cooperative approaches contained in the Paris Agreement’s Article 6. Further topics include carbon pricing initiatives of a more general nature, such as emissions trading schemes worldwide and their offsetting rules, and also project-based approaches like the joint crediting mechanism in Japan.
These topics are covered in a blend of editorial articles and guest contributions from highly regarded authors in the subject area. All articles undergo an editorial review process. The CMR appears quarterly in English and can be obtained free of charge.
