Linking permit markets multilaterally

a working paper by Baran Doda, Simon Quemin, Luca Taschini 27 February, 2019

This paper develops a novel theoretical tool with which a jurisdiction can evaluate the economic gains it can expect to obtain by linking its emissions trading system (ETS) to one, two or many ETSs at the same time, and proposes a reason why the global market remains a distant dream. read more »

Effectiveness and cost of air pollution control in China

a working paper by Thomas Stoerk 31 August, 2018

This study provides the first empirical evaluation of China’s 11th Five-Year Plan which set a goal to reduce the emission of sulphur dioxide (SO2) by 10% between 2006 and 2010. read more »

Adopt or innovate: Understanding technological responses to cap-and-trade

a working paper by Raphael Calel 18 May, 2018

This paper presents new evidence that the EU Emissions Trading System may have encouraged innovation rather than simply encouraging polluters to adopt existing abatement technologies. read more »


The climate beta

The climate beta

a working paper by Simon Dietz, Louise Kessler, Christian Gollier 28 June, 2016

This paper examines the question of whether fighting climate change has the additional advantage of reducing the aggregate risk borne by future generations. This raises the question of the ‘climate beta’, i.e. the elasticity of climate damages with respect to a change in aggregate consumption. read more »
