Emissions Trading Group

Bridget was a member of the Executive Committee of the Emissions Trading Group which devised the UK’s innovative Emissions Trading Scheme. She prepared a report commissioned by BP on the potential role of emissions trading and represented Blue Circle on the ETG, preparing reports on the likely role of the market.
