Putting a price on carbon is one of the most important pillars of a strong climate policy.
We realize that carbon pricing sounds boring, but at its core it’s about making polluters pay for their contribution to climate change. This helps make polluting activities more expensive and green solutions relatively more affordable, allowing energy-efficient businesses and households to save money.
Most market economists agree that pricing carbon is an efficient and business-friendly way to reduce emissions. The federal government is working with provinces and territories to put a national price on carbon, but needs your support.
