From staff and wire reports

*ICF International of Fairfax is partnering with Merrill Lynch to sell emissions credits and climate-change policy advice. ICF, which advises governments and companies on environmental policy, and Merrill will form Merrill Lynch Green & Gold to help companies in the Americas, Asia and Europe that don't face mandatory emission caps to cut greenhouse gas output, Merrill said.
Emissions credits' popularity is growing, and more companies want to counter their emissions output to appeal to environmentally conscious consumers, said Abyd Karmali, global head of carbon emissions at Merrill Lynch.

*Carlyle Group of the District and fellow private-equity firm J.H. Whitney & Co. bought Authentix of Dallas, which helps consumer and financial companies fight counterfeiting. Terms weren't disclosed.
Authentix uses technology to mark packages and products to prevent counterfeiting. It also works with governments to detect illegal distribution of products and avoidance of taxes.
