On 10th October, 2013 China Carbon Forum together with the Centre for Climate Economics and Policy at the Australian National University’s Crawford School of Public Policy (ANU) held a report briefing on the China Carbon Pricing Survey 2013 at the UNDP compound, Beijing.
The survey for the first time provides a quantified analysis of the expectations that China-based experts hold about carbon pricing in China. The survey provides information about expected price levels, and the expected start dates of pilot schemes and a possible national carbon pricing scheme. This information is of key importance for investors in carbon-intensive sectors, the financial sector, and policymakers to better anticipate the future cost of carbon emissions.
Carbon market developments in China are of interest around the globe, and this survey sets out the possibilities as perceived by a large number of local experts. The survey is a joint initiative of the Centre for Climate Economics and Policy at the Australian National University’s Crawford School of Public Policy and China Carbon Forum. It is part of a new cooperative research program between China and Australia on market instruments for climate change action in China.
