Chicago Climate Exchange
The Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) is North America’s only, and the world’s first, greenhouse gas (GHG) emission registry, reduction and trading system for all six greenhouse gases (GHGs). CCX is a self-regulatory, rules based exchange designed and governed by CCX Members. Members make a voluntary but legally binding commitment to reduce GHG emissions. By the end of Phase I (December, 2006) all Members will have reduced direct emissions 4% below a baseline period of 1998-2001.Phase II, which extends the CCX reduction program through 2010, will require all Members to reduce GHG emissions 6% below baseline.

The goals of CCX are:

To facilitate the transaction of greenhouse gas emissions allowance trading with price
transparency, design excellence and environmental integrity
To build the skills and institutions needed to cost-effectively manage greenhouse gas emissions
To facilitate capacity-building in both public and private sector to facilitate greenhouse gas
To strengthen the intellectual framework required for cost effective and valid greenhouse gas
To help inform the public debate on managing the risk of global climate change
