Pass a Federal Carbon Tax

Overview

Let’s Put A Price On Carbon

Join our growing coalition of businesses demanding a price on carbon.

A carbon price internalizes the cost of greenhouse gas emissions by assigning a monetary value to each ton of carbon emitted. When fossils fuel prices account for their real impact, renewable energy sources will better compete in the marketplace.

If implemented this year, a carbon price of $49 per ton* increasing annually at a rate of 2% plus inflation would:

  • Reduce emissions: 39% emissions reduction from 2005 levels by 2030
  • Generate new revenue: Over $2 trillion in revenue in the first ten years
  • Slow climate change: Exceeds commitment under The Paris Climate Agreement

*Based on the Social Cost of Carbon
