Policy Brief: How can Consumption-Based Carbon Pricing Address Carbon Leakage and Competitiveness Concerns?

The Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC) includes governments, businesses and civil society groups working together to identify and address the key challenges to successful use of carbon pricing as a way to combat climate change. As a strategic partner of CPLC, Climate Strategies works with other partners towards the long-term objective of a carbon price applied throughout the global economy.

This executive briefing, ‘How can Consumption-Based Carbon Pricing Address Carbon Leakage and Competitiveness Concerns?‘, looks at how pricing carbon consumption, rather than just production, can improve the economic efficiency and environmental effectiveness of carbon pricing schemes by ensuring that the costs of CO2 emissions associated with production are fully passed through the entire value chain.
