The purpose of this study is to determine the financial impacts of applying low-carbon projects stemming from the Kyoto Protocols on a sample of firms in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). By financial impacts we refer to the usual impacts on firms reflected in the financial reports of firms. The projects referred to as CDM aimed at reducing the demand and use of inefficient methods or producing and operating power generation resulting in high carbon emissions having negative effects on the ecology of the planet. We studied financial aspects of the projects to determine whether the sampled firms were harmed in a financial way by the implementation and results of the Kyoto sponsored projects. We do not cover all projects but a sample of those started and implemented in the PRC.
