Project on “Exploring Carbon Pricing for international Aviation and Maritime Transport”
Environmental taxation, carbon pricing and related fiscal measures.
Pricing instruments, such as taxes, levies, charges and cap and trade schemes, have been largely used in environmental policy since the last century.
These instruments are key in addressing environmental externalities and triggering the necessary investments in technologies, efficiency, innovation and behavioral changes. Market-based instruments are a crucial elements in the fight against climate change, where a large number of countries have adopted climate-related pricing regulations, and partake in international and regional carbon markets.
Market-based measures and international transport
Since 2013, ongoing collaborations have been taking place with scholars from different disciplines across the world, through an array of discussions and publications, to explore the potential and limits of carbon pricing to tackle emissions from the aviation and maritime sectors.
