National Debate on Carbon Pricing - Belgium

Putting a price on our carbon emissions is an important policy tool that can be used to redirect investment flows and steer the economy towards a low-carbon, climate-resilient future.
 
In 2017, the Belgian Federal Climate Change Service will organize a national debate on carbon pricing, to discuss the implementation of such an instrument in the non-ETS sectors in Belgium (mainly in the transport and housing sector).
 
This national debate will consist in several high-level events and technical workshops, through which national stakeholders and technical experts will analyze the possible design options for a carbon price in the non-ETS sector and discuss the best possible way to implement a well-design scheme in Belgium.
 
The High-level kick-off event of this national debate will take place in the afternoon of Wednesday 25th January, and will feature prominent speakers such as EU Commissioner Maroš Šefčovič, Belgian Minister Marie-Christine Marghem and Mr. Simon Upton, Director of the OECD Environment Directorate.
