Resumen

The Fair Trade project began when the regulatory framework of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) was uncertain. It represents a typical example of how the traditional command-and-control system, which established disincentives, fines and penalties, rather than incentives, has been changed with relation to environmental issues. Currently, there are incentives, because good environmental behavior generates fairly significant profits. Moreover, in the case of the oil palm sector, the Fedepalma Umbrella Project has significant advantages in obtaining better prices through the sale of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) and the economies of scale that are generated.
