Montenegro, as an independent State, succeded to the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro in the UNFCC Convention on 23rd October 2006.
Montenegro ratified the Kyoto Protocol (KP) on 4th of June 2007...
Montenegro next steps in the KP sector have been the establishment of the suitable environment to host CDM projects.

Montenegro has a potential to generate a large number of carbon credits over the next years by leveraging investments in the energy, waste, forestry and agricultural sectors. These opportunities can be realized by implementing projects that reduces GHG emissions or enhance sequestration.
A preliminary analysis of the carbon potential of Montenegro estimates the aggregate potential in terms of CO2 at around 2.5 million tons of CO2eq per year
