Carbon pricing: Yes. But how?

Background

Carbon Pricing has an important role to play in providing a broad signal to shift the world’s economies in order to reach the objectives of the Paris Agreement. A recent report of the High Level Commission on Carbon Prices highlights the need for carbon prices of at least US$40–80/tCO2 by 2020 and US$50–100/tCO2 by 2030.

The next question is how? Internationally, the carbon pricing community includes advocates for taxes, fees and dividends, carbon markets both linked and independent.

During NY Climate Week, Carbon Market Watch and New York University are pleased to invite the climate community for a conversation not only whether to price carbon but also how – both domestically and internationally.
