"Addressing emission transfers: carbon tariffs vs. clean-development financing"
by Springmann, Marco

Net emission transfers via international trade from developing to developed countries have increased fourfold in the last two decades. As consumption demand in developed countries is one of the main driving forces of emission transfers, several proposals have been made to assign the responsibility for those emissions to the beneficiary, i.e. to the consumer. Such definitions of emission responsibility extend the reach of domestic climate policies across national borders and make carbon-border adjustments (via carbon tariffs) and clean-development financing in the emission-exporting developing countries a natural part of consumption-based accounts.

This study analyzes the effects of clean-development financing and carbon tariffs on energy-intensive emission transfers. The clean-development policy describes the offsetting of emission transfers of Annex I countries by funding abatement measures in the emission-exporting developing countries. The policy scenarios are implemented into an energy-economic model of the global economy. A general-equilibrium modeling approach combining output subsidies with domestic emissions taxes is used to represent the effects of clean-development investments in a sectorally consistent way.
