JPG, Virginia Citizen’s Guide to Environmental Credit Trading Programs: An Overview

This publication is available in a PDF file format only.

Virginia has implemented several regulatory programs to improve environmental quality and protect Virginia’s diverse ecosystems. One approach to help
achieve Virginia’s environmental goals is through the development of environmental credit trading programs. These programs can complement pollution
control and environmental protection programs by providing citizens, businesses, and local governments with incentives and additional flexibility in achieving how these requirements are met.
