Mikael Skou Andersen - Foredragsholder

Carbon taxes are in place in 14 countries in Europe, complementing emissions trading schemes for power plants and large industrial installations. France and Portugal most recently implemented such taxes, while Nordic countries pioneered them 25 years ago. Carbon taxes have been leveraged by linking their introduction to wider environmental tax reforms, also enabling compensation to losers. Although they are less regressive than many other taxes, distributional aspects are key to the introduction of carbon taxes. Carbon taxes have proven effective in curbing emissions and with excise taxes on energy and air pollution provide a long-term signal capable of transforming energy and transport systems. Nordic countries have the most coherent schemes of taxes on fossil fuels and energy, yet tax rate reductions and sector specific exemptions need to be addressed to provide adequate incentives for delivering intended national contributions towards the climate stabilization targets of the Paris Agreement.
