Climate Change Description:

On 31 August 2007 the European Commission approved Denmarks second national allocation plan (NAP2) for carbon dioxide emissions under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. Denmark has allocated a total of 125 million CO2 emission allowances during the five years of the scheme. Of these, 2.5 million are allocated to new production units and major expansions. The remaining are allocated free of charge to those production units covered by the trading scheme in 2007.
