Green Talks LIVE: Taxing Energy Use
October 15, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Global energy consumption rose strongly in 2018 along with energy-related CO2 emissions, reaching a new all-time high. This is disconcerting, as meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement will require deep cuts in emissions.
Taxing polluting sources of energy is an effective way to curb emissions that harm the planet and human health. Where do countries stand in deploying energy and carbon taxes to reach environmental and climate goals? How can governments step up efforts?
Join Jonas Teusch from the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration on 15 October at 16:00 CEST / 10:00 EDT to discuss the key findings from the OECD publication, Taxing Energy Use 2019, which presents new and original data on energy taxes and carbon taxes in OECD and G20 countries, and in international aviation and maritime transport.
Duration: 1 hour (Presentation of 20-30 minutes followed by Q&A).
