The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is an arrangement under the Kyoto Protocol allowing developed countries with a greenhouse gas reduction commitment to invest in projects that reduce emissions in developing countries as an alternative to more expensive emission reductions in their own countries. In terms of the CDM areas, there are huge potential commercial opportunities between China and the United Kingdom since China signed the Kyoto Protocol.
