How Carbon Pricing Can Further Environmental Justice
November 12, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A new report released by CXC offers a carbon pricing policy framework that contextualizes the potential role it can play in a just transition to a regenerative, sustainable, and equitable economy. If carbon pricing is to be a central component of climate policy moving forward, it must not only reduce GHG emissions, but also embrace deep overlapping connections with major social and environmental justice issues of our time.
So how exactly can carbon pricing programs improve public health, sustainable development, economic mobility, resilience, and political self-determination in the communities that need it most?
Hear from Veronica Eady of California’s Air Resources Board (CARB), Eleanor Fort of Green for All, as well as lead author Jonah Kurman-Faber of Climate XChange on his report and what we can learn from California’s experience on cap-and-trade and environmental justice.
