Keywords: international trade; 'cap and trade'; emission trading; trading with transferable permits
In contemporary international trade the term 'trade' refers not only to traditional products and services, but also to specific forms of trade with transferable permits which are directly related to environmental protection. Transferable licenses can be sold or bought on the market or invested in an emision bank, and used later in the future. In this paper, the emphasis is on the so-called 'cap and trade' - trade with GHG emissions (Emission Trading - ET), on organized markets, often on the virtual market through computer systems. ET system minimizes the total cost of reducing emissions and thus achieves the goal of reducing emissions conducted where the lowest marginal cost of reducing emissions is. In addition to the 'cap and trade' system there is a 'baseline and trade' system. The difference between these is related to setting emission limits and the methods of allocation of transferable permits. There is a large number of markets that deal with this specific form of trade with licenses. These markets show growth and it is indicative that new markets will emerge. Also, in the future it can be expected that ET markets will be more connected, and creating diverse forms of associations in a global market.
