Swedish to English translations [PRO] Science - Environment & Ecology / pollution
Swedish term or phrase:utsläppsrätt
I'm currently teaching English to a group working with environmental issues at Länsstyrelsen and this term came up for discussion. One English equivalent - off the top of my head - is carbon credits (as in the Kyoto treaty), but do we have a proper English equivalent for local polluters/pollutants, not only companies discharging greenhouse gases?
Thanks Mats, that helps a lot! I also found emission permit or discharge permit while looking through your googles, so that should give my students something to choose from... 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
