SCOPE: BR-T1262 – Support the Development of GHG Mitigation Studies for the State of São Paulo
DESCRIPTION: The main source of Brazilian industrial GHG emissions are the industries installed in the State of São Paulo. Therefore, if we are to consider the Brazilian industrial mitigation potential it is adamant to evaluate the potential of the State of São Paulo. The GHG emission reduction potential should also consider the impact of adopting different measures and technologies on industry competitiveness, business opportunity and need for specific incentives. GHG Emission compensation options should also be considered, such as the development of a national or subnational carbon market which would allow industry to use carbon credits generated by GHG reduction projects. We propose this CT to evaluate the abatement options for the industry of São Paulo, the costs associated to this and the potential for a carbon market.
