Carbon Pricing in France & Germany (cepInput)
The pricing of CO2 emissions in the transport and building sectors dominates the climate policy debate both in France and in Germany. With a cepInput, cep and cepFrance jointly analyse and evaluate strategies and instruments of carbon pricing in both countries, highlighting differences and similarities.
France and Germany have introduced carbon pricing to reduce CO2 emissions by fossil fuels in the transport and building sectors. While CO2 emissions in the transport and building sectors are priced in France by a carbon tax since 2014, in November 2019 Germany decided to establish a national emissions trading system starting in 2021.
