Forum Climate Economics 6
Carbon Pricing – From Theory to Practice
The 6th Klimaforum titled "Carbon pricing – From theory to practice" took place on November 18th 2019 in Berlin. More than one hundred guests discussed the political and social implications of the German Climate Protection Programme.
Prof. Ottmar Edenhofer gave the keynote speech of the forum. In response, members of the Environmental Committee of the German Bundestag contributed statements and participate in a panel discussion. Afterwards, specific aspects of the climate protection programme were discussed in four breakout groups. The questions discussed included: How would a separate emissions trading system affect competitiveness? How can a redistribution of revenue from a CO2 tax be socially equitable? What other supporting measures for climate protection are necessary in addition to CO2 pricing? How can German emissions trading be brought in line with the European emissions trading system and other measures at the European level? A detailed report of the event can be found on the German version of the website.
