Carbon Curbs Haven't Spurred Production Exodus, E.U. Study Shows

Nov 1, 2013

No businesses in Europe relocated production to regions without greenhouse-gas emission curbs between 2005 and 2012, according to a study for the European Commission on a process known as carbon leakage.

"We found no evidence for any carbon leakage" in the past two trading periods of the European Union's emissions program, said Ecorys, the Rotterdam, Netherlands-based consultancy that wrote the study published on the EU's website.
