Stakeholder Workshops: Development of carbon tax scenarios and revenue recycling schemes

On March 4 and March 16, 2021, stakeholder workshops were held on the scenarios for the development of a carbon tax in Austria and revenue recycling measures to be simulated in FARECarbon. After an introduction by the project team, the various aspects related to carbon taxation and revenue recycling were discussed with the workshop participants from administration, research, NGOs and interest groups.
