Putting a tax on carbon emissions incentivizes companies and consumers to reduce their emissions, raises revenue for government and generates health and development co-benefits. But how do you design a carbon tax? What kind of sources of emissions should be taxed and at what rate? What should you do with the revenues? Enroll now for the Carbon Tax E-Course to answer these questions. The interactive online course takes you through the basic building blocks of how to design and run a carbon tax.
The course is developed by the Partnership for Market Readiness (PMR), and in collaboration with Climate Focus, the O’Neil School of Public and Environmental Affairs (Indiana University) and Gnarly Tree Sustainability Institute. The Partnership for Market Readiness (PMR),is a forum for collective innovation and knowledge exchange, and a fund to support grant-based technical assistance and capacity building to scale up climate change mitigation through market-based approaches. The PMR generates and disseminates a substantial body of knowledge on various aspects of carbon pricing. Amongst others, the ‘Carbon Tax Guide: A Handbook for Policymakers’ and the ‘Emissions Trading in Practice: A Handbook on Design and Implementation’, both published by the PMR and partners, are the most downloaded industry go-to guidebooks.
