Carbon Pricing

Objectives

  • Providing more in-depth information about carbon pricing
  • Making participating organisations' ambitions and plans available to each other
  • Presenting inspirational examples and offering support on how to translate these to your organisation

What

Countless experts call 'carbon pricing' the most effective and cost-efficient way of reducing CO2 emissions. This policy measure even has the power to change the behaviour of companies and citizens, make climate-smart investments economically attractive and stimulate innovation.

Why

Although more and more countries have started working with carbon pricing, Belgium is lagging behind in the global movement to do so. But companies can turn this around: to achieve your emissions-reduction targets, you can adopt an internal carbon price already today.

How

Through this learning network, we want to bring together organisations who are willing to work on the subject of internal carbon pricing in a concrete manner. Our plan is to offer approximately four sessions over the course of one year, combining inspiration with interaction. We will zoom in on the why & the how and provide concrete examples. The programme is partly determined by the participants.

Requirement to participate: a willingness to reveal your own organisations' plans on internal carbon pricing and to share your experiences and results of that process.
