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.
The panel will include:
Jessica Green, NYU Environmental Studies
Barbara Haya, UC Berkeley, Berkeley Energy and Climate Institute
Aki Kachi, Carbon Market Watch
Charles Komanoff, Carbon Tax Center
The event is being organized by Guarini Center and co-hosted by NYU Environmental Studies Department and Carbon Market Watch.
