The potential impacts of a domestic offset component in a carbon tax on mitigation of national emissions

Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, 2019, vol. 101, issue C, 453-460
The current global momentum for carbon pricing has lately produced innovative hybrids: carbon taxes allowing the use of offsets from emission sources not targeted by the carbon tax for compliance with the tax load. This study aims at filling the knowledge gap in existing literature by exploring the potential impacts of domestic offset components in carbon taxes on mitigation of national emissions, including the country examples Colombia, Mexico and South Africa.
