Climate dividend frameworks place a fee on carbon-emitting fuels, as close to the source as possible, to cover the whole economy, and return all revenues to households.
- This not only avoids imposing an unfair burden on those who cannot afford to spend more.
- The effect of rising fees with all revenues returned to households is a clear and predictable decline in pollution profits, with an equally clear incentive to shift to clean innovation.
- Economic analysis has shown that incomes will rise for most people.
- This happens while the offerings of the marketplace change around them, reducing the need to pollute in order to get energy for everyday life and enterprise.
The Climate Dividend Network is a multisectoral coalition of partners working to raise awareness, discover and share best practices, and catalyze the implementation of climate dividend frameworks—to eliminate carbon pollution, raise incomes, and secure a clean future economy.
