November 20, 2012
The Polish government sold EUR 21 million in Assigned Amount Units (AAU), the so-called carbon credits, to the World Bank's Spanish Carbon Fund and Carbon Fund for Europe, the World Bank said in a statement.
"The proceeds will contribute to the modernization of energy management of public buildings, such as public schools and hospitals through the Polish Energy Management in Public Buildings Program," the statement reads.
To date (since 2009) Poland sported EUR 190 million from the sale of AAUs, the World Bank said.
