German to English translations [PRO]
Bus/Financial - Economics / environmental economics
German term or phrase: Mengensteuerung
"Die aus der Umweltökonomie stammende Idee der Umweltzertifikate beruht auf einer marktkonformen staatlichen *Mengensteuerung*."

The context is a discussion of various environmental policy instruments from the perspective of environmental law. In this case, environmental permits are the issue.

"Mengensteuerung" is a technical term in German economics. Does anybody know what term would be used in English economic discourse?

Thanks a lot! I greatly appreciate your help!
