Will a carbon-added tax help save the world?

15 May 2019

What might a new tax, intended to reduce carbon emissions, look like? Think of it as a carbon-added tax replacing the existing Climate Change Levy paid by some businesses. It would work by taxing carbon dioxide emitted as greenhouse gases at each stage in the creation and sale of goods or services. The greater the amount of carbon, the higher the amount of tax. Reflecting carbon consumption in the price of goods and services, while incentivising the adoption of low-carbon alternatives, would be a massive step towards a low-carbon world.
