Description
The Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) is the world's first and North America's only voluntary, legally binding, rules-based greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction and offset trading system. CCX is the only active market for landfill methane destruction credits in the United States. CCX has over 200 members to date, including Waste Management, Inc., Rolls Royce, Motorola, International Paper, Interface, Ford, DuPont, and American Electric Power. Members with direct GHG emissions adopt a legally-binding commitment to reduce emissions over time, either internally or through the CCX cap-and-trade exchange mechanism. Members may purchase registered offsets on the exchange for annual emission reduction compliance or for speculative purposes. CCX members have traded more than 11.5 million metric tons of GHG emissions to date, including emission offsets generated from the collection and destruction of landfill methane. Offsets are generated from eligible and third-party verified landfill methane collection and destruction systems, anaerobic methane digesters, renewable energy generation, agricultural and grassland soil sequestration, forestry, and other projects subject to committee approval.
