The Impact of Climate Policy on Environmental and Economic Performance : Evidence from Sweden
The Impact of Climate Policy on Environmental and Economic Performance answers several key questions:ã What is the effect of the CO2 tax on environmental performance and profitability of firms? Does including emissions in productivity measurement of the industrial firm matter? Did the introduction of the EU ETS spur technological development in the Swedish industrial firm? What air pollutant is most inhibiting production when regulated? Being aware and learning from the Swedish case can be very relevant for countries that are in the process of shaping their climate policy.
This book is of great importance to researchers and policy makers who are interested in environmental economics, industrial economics and climate change.ã
