Pricing carbon is one of the most powerful and efficient strategies that governments and businesses are using to respond to climate change. The principle is simple: put a price on carbon pollution to account for the impacts of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that stem from the economic choices made by both producers and consumers.
