The joint effects of energy prices and carbon taxes on environmental and economic performance: Evidence from the French manufacturing sector
No 154, OECD Environment Working Papers from OECD Publishing
The paper estimates the effect of energy prices and carbon taxation on firms’ environmental and economic performance. The analysis uses data on 8 000 firms that are representative of the French manufacturing sector and observed during 2001-2016. This paper also measures the causal impact of the carbon tax over the period 2014-2018 and simulates the effect of further increasing the carbon tax rate from €45 to €86 per tonne of CO2.
