Overview of economic carbon pricing tools worldwide

June 2017
   

The Paris Agreement signed at COP21 came into effect in November 2016.

This agreement aims:

  •  to hold the increase in global average temperature to below 2°C,
      
  • and pursue efforts to limit the rise to 1.5°C by 2100.

Governments and local jurisdictions must now implement an economic and regulatory framework to encourage greenhouse gas reductions.

One of the economic tools available is carbon pricing. It varies greatly in form and value at international level and is deployed in all sectors of the economy.
