The 14,000th article deposited for Act on Acceptance and Open Access at Oxford was a paper in Climate Policy entitled ‘The fiscal benefits of stringent climate change mitigation: an overview’. Dr Linus Mattauch, who conducts research on climate economics at the Institute for New Economic Thinking and the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford, coordinated the study jointly with Dr Jan Siegmeier of the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change in Berlin.

Dr Mattauch said the article “is about implications of national climate policy for managing the government budget. Meeting the world’s climate objectives means reducing carbon emissions to net zero in the 21st century. The most effective way to do this is by pricing carbon, either through emissions trading or carbon taxes. Imagine a policy maker who recognizes this, but associates it with adverse effects on jobs, competitiveness and growth.”
“For the first time, we synthesise findings that can help policy makers align ambitious emission reductions with these broader economic policy objectives” he explained. The article is part of a forthcoming special issue in the journal Climate Policy compiled by a group of editors including Myles Allen of the Environmental Change Institute.
