Mandatory compliance & Voluntary carbon market pricing

Mandatory (compliance) markets are governed by national, regional, or provincial law and compel emission sources to meet greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets. Because compliance programme offset credits are generated and traded for regulatory compliance, they typically act like other commodity pricing.

Companies can engage in the voluntary carbon market on their own or as part of an industry-wide programme.
