If a cap and trade emissions program is introduced, accounting guidance for emission rights should be provided by accounting standards setters such as IASB and FASB. However, no accounting standards for emission rights have been provided so far.
This study examines accounting issues for emission rights under EU-ETS and suggests accounting methods on emission rights. Specifically, we review several alternative accounting methods which have been suggested for emission rights and evaluate the respective accounting consequences. Especially, we focus on two main accounting issues about emission rights. First, we evaluate the nature of emission rights allocated by government, that is, whether they satisfy the definition of an asset and if so, what kind of asset they are. Second, we discuss accounting treatments for the credit if issued emission rights are accounted as an asset. (The rest omitted)
