Starting Point for the Deployment of Carbon Pricing Mechanisms in Chile

Series of Booklets – Carbon Pricing Instruments: No. 1

The booklet "Starting Point for the Deployment of Carbon Pricing Mechanisms in Chile" describes the initial situation for the deployment of carbon pricing mechanisms in Chile, starting with the introduction of a green tax in 2017, which fundamentally expanded the set of tools available for environmental management. The main purpose of the green tax is to support and complement measures to reduce local air pollution and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.

The Carbon Pricing Instrument Booklet Series explains key aspects of the design, implementation, and development of carbon pricing instruments in Chile. They were developed as part of the Global Carbon Market project in Chile, which is helping the national government develop carbon pricing instruments and explore financing mechanisms for climate action.
