Carbon Credits for Forests and Forest Products
AbstractIt is possible to make a current valuation of the effects of carbon dioxide which tracks a valuation done under the metric of expected present value and also tracks realized values. The implementation of a carbon credit scheme based on green accounting could go as follows: L'évaluation des effets de verrouillage du gaz carbonique par la forêt et les produits forestiers fait intervenir des espérances mathématiques de valeurs futures. Pourtant nous montrons qu'on peut en faire la mesure à partir de valeurs courantes, ce qui suggère le système suivant d'attribution de crédits carbone:
