    The 9th Civil Society Media Seminar, organised at the EIB in Luxembourg from 26 to 27 November 2015 looked at how the EU and its partner organisations used communication to achieve their goals in development aid and policy.

    Combatting climate change: putting a price on carbon on the basis of economic and social criteria

    Carbon prices are now pivotal in the fight against climate change, as they are acknowledged to be a key economic and financial tool for weaning economies off carbon.

    Set directly or indirectly, explicitly or implicitly, carbon prices play a very different role in the EU Member States' climate policies, albeit chiefly through taxes which primarily affect jobs and the purchasing power of the least well-off households. These policies have a deflationary effect on economic growth and are at the root of the rise in social inequality in many European countries, which is why the policies urge compensation mechanisms to mitigate this effect. However, looking for new sources of revenue and jobs would seem to be the most appropriate response - although taxes cannot be excluded – to kick start fair, equitable, low-carbon growth in Europe.
