Time-Consistent Carbon Pricing: The Role of Carbon Contracts for Differences

Carbon pricing decisions by governments are prone to time-inconsistency, which causes the private sector to underinvest in emission-reducing technologies. We show that incentives for decarbonization can be improved if complementing carbon pricing with carbon contracts for differences, where the government commits to pay a fixed carbon price level to the investors. We derive conditions under which the ...

Options for EU Trade Policy to Enhance Climate Action: Strategic and Tactical Considerations for Incentivising Low-Carbon Investment and Addressing Carbon Leakage

In her Political Guidelines, Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen declares cli-mate neutrality to be one of the central objectives of a proposed European Green Deal. EU member states are now discussing whether to formally agree on an objective for climate neutrality in 2050. Some have already set deadlines – Finland as early as 2035. This has triggered reflection on the adequate policy mix, ...

Green Public Procurement and the Innovation Activities of Firms

This paper provides first empirical insights on the relationship between green public procurement (GPP) and firms' innovation activities. Considering that the public sector is a large buyer in the economy, public procurement is able to work as demand-pull factor for new products and thus innovations - given that the procurement is aimed at such objectives. GPP is specifically implemented to contribute ...

The Impact of Implementing a Consumption Charge on Carbon-Intensive Materials in Europe

The production of basic materials accounts for around 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Existing measures to reduce emissions from industry are limited due to a combination of competitiveness concerns and a lack of technological options available to producers. In this paper, we assess the possibility of implementing a materials charge to reduce demand for basic industrial products and, hence, ...

Klimakriterien bei der Vergabe öffentlicher Aufträge können dazu beitragen, deutsche Treibhausgasemissionen zu senken

Nach Schätzungen des vorliegenden Berichts sind staatliche Käufe für mindestens zwölf Prozent der deutschen Treibhausgasemissionen verantwortlich. Diese entstehen vor allem im Zuge der Bereitstellung öffentlicher Dienstleistungen und von Bauinvestitionen. Durch umweltfreundliche öffentliche Beschaffung (Green Public Procurement, GPP) – die Berücksichtigung der CO₂-Bilanz von Gütern und Dienstleistungen ...

Green Public Procurement: Climate Provisions in Public Tenders Can Help Reduce German Carbon Emissions

This report estimates that government consumption and investment are responsible for at least 12 percent of German greenhouse gas emissions, mostly arising from the provision of public services and construction. Climate-friendly Green Public Procurement (GPP), which takes into account the carbon footprint of products and services in public tenders, can help reduce these emissions. Construction, and ...
