OECD COP26 Virtual Pavilion

No time to rest – Stepping up carbon pricing efforts to meet climate goals

Nov 3, 2021 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Pricing carbon-based energy is an effective way to curb CO2 emissions, a principal driver of climate change. While the latest OECD data show that around half of emissions remain unpriced in 2021, significant progress has been made in just a couple of years. Still stronger action is needed to successfully transition to net-zero emissions by 2050. Supported by OECD data and analysis, enhanced international co-operation on climate mitigation policies could help spur more widespread climate action. This event will discuss the role of carbon pricing in driving greenhouse gas reductions and highlight the latest carbon pricing progress in G20 countries – which together account for over 80% of energy emissions. Join us to engage in discussions on how to advance carbon pricing and greenhouse gas mitigation efforts for climate action.
