ITIF Presents: Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanisms and Climate-Tech Innovation: A Happy Coupling?


2:00 PM


About the Event

Talk of carbon border adjustment mechanisms (CBAMs) is everywhere these days. With the European Union releasing a proposal in July to apply its carbon price to imported products and the United States considering a similar approach, policymakers have renewed their focus on leveling the playing field for domestic energy-intensive manufacturers. But CBAMs pose significant implementation challenges and risks to global trading relationships, international climate agreements, and much needed climate-tech innovation. Please join ITIF and Silverado's Co-Founder and Chair Maureen Hinman for a discussion on the current state of carbon tariffs, their challenges, and potential multilateral alternatives.
