Failure to launch: the Kyoto protocol and sustainable strategic management

by Inderscience Publishers  (Dec. 21, 2009)

Despite an unquestioned worldwide green movement, business progress toward environmental sustainability has been relatively slow.

Kyoto mistakes

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jan. 26, 2004)

The Kyoto Protocol conflicts with a rational view of what short-term climate policy should achieve.

Methane emission reduction may help to meet the short-term aims, but does ...

Burden-sharing and global climate negotiations: the case of the Kyoto Protocol

Interest groups and efficient design of the Clean Development Mechanism under the Kyoto Protocol

by Inderscience Publishers  (May 11, 2004)

The implementation of activities aimed at mitigating global greenhouse gas emissions is more cost-efficient in developing countries than in most of the industrialised world. Nevertheless, efficient mitigation may have adverse effects on equity. A Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is therefore to assure that the interests of all parties implicated ...
