Several different types of links are possible between different GHG-mitigation systems. These include:

• Linking two or more emission trading schemes so that emissions trading can occur both within and
between different schemes (“direct links”);

• Linking emission trading systems to registries/mechanisms and systems that generate offsets from
project based mechanisms or from direct purchases/transfers of AAUs (“indirect links”).
