Report of the High-Level Commission on Carbon Pricing and Competitiveness (English)

This report is based on the commission’s assessment of the available evidence and literature, a series of consultations with industry from a range of countries and advice from an expert advisory group. The primary focus of the report is on the competitiveness issues that may arise from carbon pricing. It highlights key insights and significant considerations relevant to mandatory pricing of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and its effect on competitiveness. The report is organized as follows: first, it provides background on the rationale for carbon pricing policy and offers a short explanation of the general nature of competitiveness impacts. Next, it examines international competitiveness, specifically the concerns of emissions-intensive trade-exposed (EITE) industries. It then identifies policies that can remediate competitiveness impacts and describes the benefits associated with pricing. Finally, key takeaways conclude the report.
