Welcome on the homepage of the ET-expert Dr. Arthur Pelchen:

Starting with the implementation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) within EU and German legislation the business community is facing new and demanding challenges ever and again.

Since 1st of January 2005 operators of carbon-emitting facilities covered by the EU-directive on emissions trading need to report their annual carbon emissions according to legally defined standards and verified by an independent third party to their national competent authorities. Additionally they are obliged to cancel a number of allowances equivalent to their verified emissions. Since 1st of January 2010 aircraft operators are also covered by the EU-Directive. Starting 01.01.2013 further industries were added to the scope of the European Emission Trading System (EU-ETS). In addition companies with a free allocation of allowances are required to report annually until 31st of January to the Emissions Trading Authorities (DEHSt) any changes in the operation of their installations according to § 22 ZuV 2020.

To cover possible deficits, operators may trade allowances or invest in cost-saving international abatement projects (CDM/JI).

Additionally both individuals and companies increasingly use the possibility to render their operations climate-neutral by compensating their carbon emissions by abatement projects elsewhere.

For this purpose companies calculate their Carbon Footprint according to a range of different standards, e.g. the ISO 14065 or 14067 as well as the GHG Protocol or the EN 16258.
