Carbon border adjustments are under active consideration in several countries. These proposals are similar in one respect — each would tax imports of certain goods in order to account for perceived higher carbon content in the production of these goods in the exporting country. However, they differ significantly when it comes to the goods to which they would apply, whether the adjustments are intended to level the playing field or tilt it, and which countries would benefit or lose the most under such a system. At this webinar, a panel of experts discussed some of the concepts and proposals for carbon border adjustments in the U.S., the EU and elsewhere, and the possible impacts on both climate and international trade.
