High-level Commission Calls for Long-term, Stable Carbon Pricing Policies

A new report co-authored by EUI Professor Jos Delbeke tackles concerns about industrial competitiveness, which according to the experts can be addressed through strong carbon pricing policies.

A new report by the High-Level Commission on Carbon Pricing and Competitiveness — comprising CEOs and senior executives from leading global companies, as well as former high-level government officials and representatives from academia — calls on industry peers and governments to adopt strong carbon pricing policies. As more businesses develop low-carbon strategies, supportive government policies can act in tandem to unlock economic opportunities and manage competitiveness concerns.

EUI Professor Jos Delbeke is one of the authors of the new Report of the High-Level Commission on Carbon Pricing and Competitiveness.

Avoiding the most severe impacts of climate change requires an effective, flexible, and low-cost strategy. Putting a price on carbon is part of the solution, Jos Delbeke said.

Carbon pricing will be on the agenda during the upcoming online course on climate governance at the School of Transnational Governance.
