Carbon Tax

Die CO2-Steuer (auch Kohlenstoffsteuer, englisch: Carbon tax) ist eine Umweltsteuer auf Kohlendioxid (CO2) und andere Treibhausgase.

Die Kosten für Klimafolgen sowie Umweltschäden an der Biodiversität der Meere sollen Unternehmen und Verbrauchern, die CO2-Emissionen verursachen, mit einem deutlichen Preissignal mitgeteilt werden.
