Tradable permit markets have become an increasingly popular tool to address environmental policy problems. This paper describes and evaluates the performance of the Regional Clean Air Incentives Market (RECLAIM) that started operating in Southern California at the beginning of 1994. In analysing overall market performance as well as industry and firm specific information,we find strong evidence for uncertainty influencing market participation during the first two years. Furthermore we find evidence for flexibility-induced abatement cost savings as well as a potential business cycle effect on trading behaviour.Our findings emphasizethe importanceof institutional features of trading programmes.
