The Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition brings together leaders from across government, the private sector and civil society to share experience working with carbon pricing and to expand the evidence base for the most effective carbon pricing systems and policies.
The coalition is:
- Bringing together government and business in leadership dialogues that identify and address the most pressing issues in relation to carbon pricing
- Deepening understanding of the business and economic case for carbon pricing by developing pathways that illustrate plausible outlooks under a variety of carbon pricing policies and timelines
- Collecting evidence to help inform successful carbon pricing
As part of this, the World Bank’s President Jim Yong Kim and the International Monetary Fund’s Managing Director Christine Lagarde convened a Carbon Pricing Panel.
Members of the Panel include German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, French President François Hollande, Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, Philippines President Benigno Aquino III, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, Governor Jerry Brown of California, and Mayor Eduardo Paes of Rio de Janeiro.
They are joined by private sector leaders from the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS), Engie, the Mahindra Group and Royal DSM.
