Abstract: A CO2 price is a central instrument to enable and facilitate a comprehensive decarbonisation of the economy. It can be implemented by different instruments, particularly in the form of a CO2 tax. It is important, however, that a CO2 price alone – due to the manifold obstacles (including non-economic barriers) – cannot replace sectoral goals and instruments. Rather, it must be implemented as a complement to sector-specific climate protection instruments. The article provides information on how a CO2 price can be shaped in a concrete and appropriate form.
