Deutsche Bank staff jailed in carbon trading fraud crackdown

(December 21, 2012) As carbon credit fraud continues to escalate, five employees at Germany’s biggest money lender have been accused of money laundering or obstruction of justice in relation to a carbon trading scheme. In related news, the UK’s Financial Services Authority is now asking anyone who has invested in carbon credits to fill in an online survey, in an effort to better illuminate the problem of fraud. Meanwhile, a new interactive map has been launched by the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) and Ecofys to show the status of emissions trading schemes around the world.
