Please join the Center for Global Sustainability and  the SPP Environmental Council as we welcome Dr. Katja Biedenkopf to the first Global Sustainability Forum.

Carbon pricing policies have soared in recent years. Individual carbon pricing policies mostly take the form of a greenhouse gas emissions trading system or a carbon tax, but these two broad approaches allow for a high degree of variance with no policy exactly mirroring another. During her talk, Prof. Biedenkopf will sketch the contours of the emerging polycentric carbon pricing system, discuss its characteristics and propose a conceptualization of the various types of linking mechanisms that ties the individual carbon pricing policies together in a global polycentric system.
