Carbon Pricing, Tax & Trading Policies
Intensive 3-day live online course
Cost $ 1550
In the past few years, there has been renewed and increasing attention to policy tools that put a price on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by adopting carbon taxes. About 50% of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) pledged by governments under the Paris Agreement mention carbon pricing as a cost-effective tool for meeting climate goals.
Currently, carbon taxes span multiple sectors and incorporate new elements, indicating their ability to adjust to various policy objectives and national backgrounds. The comprehensiveness of carbon taxes also indicates that decision-makers need to have a clear view of the available options and how these options fit into a jurisdiction's context and objective.
This course aims to provide attendees with an understanding of economic theory and practice relevant to designing and implementing carbon pricing and relevant policies.
Topics will include the basic economic theories of tool choice and efficient regulation of externalities, the economics of carbon markets such as emissions trading and other instruments, and the practical implementation and reform of carbon pricing schemes.
Attendees will leave the course with a solid foundation of how carbon pricing works and the ability to assess its impact on society and businesses.
Gain a solid understanding of how carbon pricing works, its impact on society and businesses and the current opportunities around the world.
The agenda will combine presented materials with plenty of opportunities for Q&A, interactive discussions, and the use of quantitative models to illustrate key learning points. Current market examples and data are utilized wherever helpful.
