This is because most of their income is spent on permits therefore not much profit is made which can be spent on the expansion of the business and research and development Also, it is unfair on poorer countries as they are unable to afford the permits Therefore, this has caused rich developed countries to buy the permits of less developed countries. This means that this has not stopped pollution as permits are being bought by other countries but this country is still polluting Is the policy sustainable?: Is the policy sustainable? Pollution permits can be sustainable This is only the case if firms recycle their unwanted materials instead of disposing of it in seas etc… Recycling waste materials decreases fossil fuel emission and is therefore more sustainable for the environment Also, it protects resources for future generations making it very sustainable However, this is only if firms recycle waste
