Abstract

In today's globalised world, no country or even entity is free to play without complying with international and national rules of the game. As always, the real world throws up a dilemma in these rules of the game. Even though international and national rules interact closely with each other, in principle international rules only provide commonly applicable minimum standards to countries and differentiated national rules are applied in a country under the broader international framework. The same applies to regulating global climate change. It is likely that standards and standardisation on climate change would appear and keep growing in near future at the national and international level. This would impact broader producers of energy-using products, pose significant barriers to market access and become determinants of a firm's competitiveness in the international market.
