This online “food policy trial” event held by the Food Ethics Council will consider the idea of a carbon border adjustment tax and its potential impacts on food outcomes. The event does not start from the premise that a carbon border adjustment tax is necessarily a good thing but aims to critically explore its merits and pitfalls.
Speakers will include:
- Professor Dieter Helm, Professor of Economic Policy at the University of Oxford;
- Angela Francis, Chief Advisor, Economics and Economic Development, WWF-UK;
- Chiara Putaturo, EU Inequality and Tax Policy Advisor, Oxfam;
- Jack Watts, Agri-food Policy Delivery Manager, National Farmers’ Union (NFU).
