description The Clean Development Mechanism is the only formal economic instrument on the market that makes it possible for industrialized countries that ratified the Kyoto Protocol to access opportunities of migration of emissions in developing countries. Hence, it constitutes an instrument that fosters entrepreneurship, both locally and abroad, thus turning the negative external factor associated with the climate change into a business opportunity. Based on a review of the information contained in 45 documents describing the design of projects registered by Colombia with the United Nations as of February 2013 and of publicly available information of companies involved in these kinds of projects, this article provides an analysis of the contribution of this mechanism to green entrepreneurship in Colombia. The results of this review show that there are still a small number of initiatives for entrepreneurship in Colombia using the Clean Development Mechanism because the number of registered projects is also small. The entrepreneurship rate is higher in economic sectors such as those engaged in the handling and disposal of waste and renewable energies. They also show that most entrepreneuring companies acting on behalf of Colombia are private companies and state-owned industrial and commercial companies. Foreign participants come primarily from countries such as the United Kingdom, Japan, and The Netherlands. It is concluded that there is a need to eliminate some barriers in order to strengthen entrepreneurship by means of this mechanism.

El Mecanismo de Desarrollo Limpio constituye el único instrumento económico y formal de mercado, a través del cual los países industrializados que ratificaron el Protocolo de Kioto, pueden acceder a oportunidades de mitigación de emisiones en países en desarrollo. Por tanto, representa un instrumento que incentiva el emprendimiento verde local e internacional, transformando la externalidad negativa asociada al cambio climático, en una oportunidad de negocio. A partir de la revisión de la información contenida en los 45 documentos de diseño de proyectos registrados por Colombia ante las Naciones Unidas a febrero de 2013, y de información pública de las empresas participantes en tales proyectos, este artículo aporta un análisis de la contribución de este mecanismo al emprendimiento verde en Colombia. Como resultado, se pudo evidenciar que las iniciativas emprendedoras en Colombia a través del Mecanismo de Desarrollo Limpio son aún reducidas, debido a que el número de proyectos registrados también lo es. La tasa de emprendimiento es superior en sectores económicos como los asociados a manipulación y disposición de residuos y energías renovables. Así mismo, la mayoría de empresas emprendedoras que actúan en nombre de Colombia corresponden a empresas privadas y Empresas Industriales y Comerciales del Estado. Los participantes extranjeros provienen principalmente de países como Reino Unido, Japón y Países Bajos. Se concluye que es necesario eliminar algunas barreras identificadas, para fortalecer el emprendimiento a través de este mecanismo. O Mecanismo de Desenvolvimento Limpo constitui o único instrumento econômico e formal de mercado, através do qual os países industrializados que ratificaram o Protocolo de Kioto, podem ter acesso a oportunidades de atenuação de emissões em países em desenvolvimento. Portanto constitui um instrumento que incentiva o empreendimento verde local e internacional, transformando a externalidade negativa associada à mudança climática, em uma oportunidade de negócio. A partir da revisão das informações contidas nos 45 documentos de concepção de projetos registrados pela Colômbia junto das Nações Unidas em Fevereiro de 2013 e de informação pública das empresas participantes nesses projetos, este artigo fornece uma análise da contribuição deste mecanismo ao empreendimento verde na Colômbia. Como resultado ficou evidente que as iniciativas empreendedoras na Colômbia através do Mecanismo de Desenvolvimento Limpo são ainda reduzidas, porque o número de projetos registrados também o é. A taxa de empreendedorismo é maior em setores econômicos como aqueles associados com o manuseio e descarte de resíduos e energias renováveis. Da mesma forma, a maioria das empresas empreendedoras que atuam em nome da Colômbia correspondem a empresas privadas e Empresas Industriais e Comerciais do Estado. Os participantes estrangeiros vêm principalmente de países como o Reino Unido, Japão e Países Baixos. Concluímos que é necessário eliminar algumas barreiras identificadas, para fortalecer o empreendimento através deste mecanismo. 2017-06-30 2019-03-19T15:22:35Z 2019-03-19T15:22:35Z Artículo revisado por pares http://purl.org/coar/resource_type/c_6501 http://purl.org/coar/version/c_970fb48d4fbd8a85 https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/entramado/article/view/3444 http://hdl.handle.net/10901/13105 spa https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/entramado/article/view/3444/2835 Revistas - Ciencias Sociales y Humanas http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.5/co/ Atribución-NoComercial-SinDerivadas 2.5 Colombia application/pdf Universidad Libre Entramado; Vol. 9 Núm. 1 (2013): Entramado; 38-65 2539-0279 1900-3803
