The aim of this study is to explain the idea of forming emissions cap-and-trade market as a new market- based instrument to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the Iron and Steel industry in Iran. Thus, as the first step of  formation of such market in line with joining Iran to the Kyoto Protocol and Paris conference in 2020, this study deals with the feasibility of establishment such market in the Iron and Steel industry. In this regard, 10 factories are selected as representatives of all iron and steel production firms. Currently, these producers account for more than half of nominal capacity of steel products. In addition to examine the feasibility of emissions cap-and-trade market in Iron and steel industry, a hypothetical market is constructed for selected firms, and  emissions cap and trade program was evaluated in economic terms. Findings show that forming such market as economic and environmental tool is impossible, or there is no incentive for establishing this market, and the economic savings will be negligible.
