In a special report, the Council analyzed for the government incentives in order to promote less emissions and options for setting a price for CO2 emissions. A new climate strategy should help Germany to reach its climate goal in 2030, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 55 per cent in comparison to 1990.
Based on the Council's special report, Wieland will outline the current situation and present different options for carbon pricing, which should also ensure competitiveness and social balance.
