More than 1,200 companies worldwide have implemented an internal price on carbon as a business practice and are achieving cost savings and emission reductions as a result.
Well-known brands Microsoft, Disney, Shell, and Unilever are incorporating carbon pricing into their business models. Some companies apply a carbon fee directly to their normal business activity, generating revenue to support projects that help meet internal greenhouse gas reduction goals. Others apply a “shadow price” as a risk assessment tool for operating profitably within carbon-constrained markets.
The Put a Price On It DC campaign is encouraging the DC government to create a carbon price for businesses in the District. Join our discussion on the economic implications of carbon pricing, how it will affect businesses, institutions and other players and what they can do to best advantage themselves.
