This important document was signed by the Commission of the United Nations for Climate Change in Kyoto (Japan) in 1997. The protocol aims at the stabilization of the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. It states that these emissions have to be reduced for most developed country targets. Between 2008 and 2012, these countries should reduce, on average, 5% of emissions of greenhouse gases in relation to the percentage recorded in 1990. The Kyoto protocol also gives guidelines to reach these targets, for example through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
