What is The Carbon Price Communiqué?

The Carbon Price Communiqué was launched in 2012 in the run up to the UNFCC COP 18 negotiations in Doha. It has already secured the support of over 155 companies from around the world. It remains open for sign up.

The Carbon Price Communiqué makes the case for setting a price on carbon emissions as one of the main building blocks of an effective and ambitious climate change policy framework. With this statement business leaders are reiterating the value of a strong carbon price as a tool that if designed properly, can work along with other complementary policies to deliver carbon emissions reductions proportionate with the scale of the climate challenge.
