Carbon Pricing & Policies: Choices & strategies

Tuesday, March 10

11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Climate action is an imperative for the energy industry. Companies and countries adopt policies such as a price on carbon to reduce emissions intensity in pursuit of climate change goals. These policies are popular, but are they effecting real change? What are the economic and environmental costs and benefits of pricing carbon today? And what types of policies might be needed to achieve longer-term climate goals?
