OECD Webinar - Energy Use: Reforming energy tax systems to achieve environmental goals

  • OECD 2 Rue André Pascal Paris, Île-de-France, 75016 France (map)

With almost no emissions from energy use priced at levels required to keep global temperature increases below 2 degrees Celsius, there is still considerable scope, and an urgent need, to improve the use of taxation to reduce pollution and combat climate change.

How do energy and carbon taxes differ across countries, different fuels and sectors? What should be done to reduce emissions and reach global climate goals at minimum cost?

Join environmental tax economists from the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration on 14 February at 17:00 (Paris time) / 11:00 EST, to discuss the key findings from the upcoming OECD publication, Taxing Energy Use 2018, which measures the magnitude and coverage of energy and carbon taxes in 42 OECD and G20 countries and provides a first appreciation of changes in energy and carbon taxes over time.

Duration: 1 hour (Presentation of 20-30 minutes followed by Q&A)
