Climate policy: driving and renting a place of living should be burdened to a lesser extent

(GermanPolicy.com) – Drivers and tenants should be burdened to a lesser extent for measures against climate change. This is what the Center for European Economic Research has called for. Should it remain that 61 percent of CO2 emissions come from the transport and building sectors, this will prompt the CO2 price on diesel, or heating oil, to rise to more than 300 Euros per ton in the coming decade. Reducing the CO2 emissions of the commercial economy would be more cost-effective, the center said. This meant that diesel and heating oil would only be 100 to 150 euros per ton more expensive, and the industry would pay 70 to 90 Euros more per ton. According to the center’s calculations, the savings would be 35 billion Euros per year.
