Inclusion of Consumption of carbon intensive materials in emissions trading – An option for carbon pricing post-2020

Downloads

The Inclusion of Consumption (IoC) project was jointly led by Climate Strategies and DIW Berlin during 2015-2016. The project explored whether inclusion of domestic sales of selected energy intensive commodities, such as steel, in domestic emission trading schemes is an effective and feasible approach towards restoring the carbon price signal in these sectors, without damaging competitiveness.

The final report of the project explored the importance of carbon pricing for the materials sector and concluded that inclusion of consumption of selected carbon intensive materials in emission trading avoids complexity and provides a consistent solution from a governance, business, and environmental perspective.
