Project Policy Roadmap and Implementation of Instruments to Tackle Consumption-based emissions

Final workshop of the Carbon-CAP, 11th of October 2016, Brussels

The Carbon-CAP research team aimed to assist policy makers, businesses and consumer groups in understanding the key findings of Carbon-CAP 'Carbon emission mitigation by Consumption-based Accounting and Policy’. This event was particularly to discuss the potential of consumer-based policy instruments to reduce emissions associated with EU consumption and to facilitate dialogue between policy makers, business leaders and consumer representatives on how they can work together implementing portfolios of these instruments going forward.

The day was organised around three clusters of key findings and recommendations of the Carbon-CAP project, in the form of three panel discussions and a less formal discussion’ session.
