They don't refine their product to make it more environmentally friendlier. They just spend more money to hide it.
the carbon trading market is a reality. What is also a reality is the laughable levels of security in place around what is a multi-million Euro market.
Account security it limited to a pre-generated user ID and passwords on a 90 day expiry. No tokens, no additional verification of identity, just a simple account that lets you trade millions of carbon certificates. Apart from a rather perfunctory plea not to answer phishing emails there is no further advice on the registry website on securing the accounts or managing access.
For something this valuable ( Holcim Romania lost something in the region of 20M Euro ) you'd think they could put in some decent security or at least offer advice to their account holders.
