Feasibility . Acceptance . Efficiency .

Each country responds in a different way to face the net‐zero pathway. So what is really worth? Which policy works better?

Massimo Tavoni RFF-CMCC director

Carbon taxes and environmental taxes in general, may not be feasible right now but may become viable in the future with proper revenue recycling towards clean infrastructure, investment or social redistribution

Summary of discussion CAPABLE 1st Policy workshop

The governments' responses to the energy crisis was quick and robust but untargeted, and overall the crisis had not derailed much of the climate change mitigation efforts.
