The basic principles of Joint Implementation are defined in Article 6 of the Kyoto Protocol. Project participants from two (or more) Annex 1 Parties may jointly implement an emissions-reducing project in the territory of an Annex 1 Party, and count the resulting emission reduction units towards meeting the Kyoto target of the other involved Annex 1 Party/ies.
Introduction to JOINT IMPLEMENTATION - JI
- Designate a national JI Focal Point for the purposes of JI (so called Designated Focal Point / DFP), who approves JI project proposals.
- Adopt National Guidelines and Procedures for approving JI projects, which would address consideration of stakeholders' comments, monitoring performance of projects and verification of emissions reductions.

Recognized as a high-potential executive, in 2009, Bill’s career took a ten-fold leap in responsibility when he was sought out by Solar Technologies S.A and accepted a project developers position concerning Photovoltaic and wind Renewable Energy resources. Easily making the transition from project developer to Carbon Trading Research executive in 2010.Such a demanding research took place in the rather hostile (for new ideas )country Greece. He didn’t disappoint, championing the complete overhaul and modernization of the company’s possibilities to evolve in a Carbon Trading company.
Today, Vasileios Bizios resides Greece,. While open to opportunities, he has focused his search on CO2 or other senior technology executive roles in financial services, trading, acquisition-oriented, and other complex, information-intensive companies. Bill can be reached at 210-6198908 / firstname.lastname@example.org and he maintains a personal mail (email@example.com) with additional information regarding his career and his credentials.
 The ‘assigned amount’ is the amount to which an Annex 1 Party must reduce its emissions over the five year commitment period 2008-2012, as included in Annex B of the Protocol. It is measured in assigned amount units (AAU), each equal to one tonne of CO2 equivalent (1tCOe).
