Climate Focus joins the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC)

Climate Focus sees carbon pricing as one of the key strategies for achieving the global transition to a low-carbon future. By placing a clear, stable and ambitious price on carbon, countries, states and companies can provide the additional push needed to steer our economies from ‘brown’ to ‘green’. Climate Focus is committed to advancing carbon pricing globally through supporting the development of tailored, well-designed policies worldwide.

Reflecting this commitment, Climate Focus has recently become a partner of the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC). The CPLC brings together leaders from across government, the private sector, academia and civil society, with the aim of expanding the use of carbon pricing policies and, through sharing knowledge and experiences, contributing to better and more effective policies. A worldwide low-carbon transition requires commitment and determination of all stakeholders, which is facilitated by the CPLC through enabling dialogue, knowledge- and experience sharing amongst leading actors.

Climate Focus brings a wealth of carbon pricing experience to the coalition, building on our existing work advising governments and businesses in a wide range of countries on their carbon pricing policies, including Turkey, Kazakhstan, Costa Rica and Chile, as well as developing leading guidance on the topic, through documents such as the Carbon Tax Guide. We also bring extensive experience with putting a price on carbon through carbon markets, including our long-term engagement with the UNFCCC negotiations on cooperative action, and through over a decade of supporting projects under various carbon standards. As a CPLC coalition partner, Climate Focus will continue to contribute of the international dialogue on carbon pricing and contribute to fostering government leadership, mobilizing business support, building and sharing an evidence base for carbon pricing policies, and effectively communicating carbon pricing strategies.
