UNFCCC SB’s Side Event Policy Solutions for a Climate Friendly Materials Sector

Production of basic materials like steel, cement or aluminium is responsible for the majority of industrial GHG emissions. Yet so far national policies provide very limited support for climate friendly material production and efficient use of materials. In principle, Emission Trading Systems were implemented to provide the desired incentives. In practice, carbon leakage concerns trigger free...


Ende der Welt gegen Monatsende? Muss kein Widerspruch sein. Kommentar von Karsten Neuhoff

Seit Jahren feilen wir Klimaökonominnen und -ökonomen an Modellen und Ansätzen, um CO2-Emissionen zu reduzieren undden Klimawandel anzuhalten. Die Proteste der „Gelbwesten“ in Frankreich, ausgelöst durch eine Erhöhung der Benzin- und Dieselsteuern, haben aber gezeigt: Das wird nicht funktionieren, wenn wir nicht alle mitnehmen und klar zeigen, dass die Kosten für ...

Environmental Regulations: Lessons from the Command-and-Control Approach

Policy makers have long favored command-and-control (CAC) methods to tackle environmental damage. The number of CAC policies devoted to environmental protection has increased steadily since the 1950s and have been a large part of the overall portfolio of environmental laws andregulation in the industrialized world. Schmitt and Schulze (2011) document that between 1970 and 2011 the two most prevalent ...

China's Emissions Trading Takes Steps Towards Big Ambitions

China recently announced its national emissions trading scheme, advancing market-based approaches to cutting greenhouse gas emissions. Its evolution over coming years will determine whether it becomes an effective part of China’s portfolio of climate policies.

Pricing Carbon Consumption: Synthesizing an Emerging Trend

Nearly every carbon price regulates the production of carbon emissions, typically at midstream points of compliance such as power plants, consistent with typical advice from the literature. Since the early 2010s however, policymakers in Australia, California, China, Japan and Korea have implemented carbon prices that regulate the consumption of carbon emissions, where points of compliance are further ...

Project-Based Carbon Contracts: A Way to Finance Innovative Low-Carbon Investments

Low and uncertain carbon prices are often stated as a major obstacle for industrial sector investments in technologies to deliver deep emissions reductions. Project-based carbon contracts underwritten by national governments could addressregulatory risk, lower financing costs and strengthen incentives for emission reductions at investment and operation stage. In this paper design options for project-based ...
