Project Report:
Exploring the feasibility of a CBAM in the USA
- Investigates the causes of economic imbalances.
- Explores and develops market-based solutions.


Project will explore the feasibility of a Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism in the U.S.


The project will particularly focus on how a CBAM would be an efficient way to address the market failure caused by greenhouse gas emissions (i.e., find a remedy for impaired markets).

Climate change is one of the most important challenges mankind is facing and it is therefore important to find ways to address it through regulation and harnessing the power of markets.


The scope of the project will be national.
