Technological change is undoubtedly one of the keys to ensuring that climate change can be addressed without compromising economic growth. This policy brief provides key messages promoting technological innovation to address climate change.
This Inventory provides reliable and comparable data on support or tax expenditures for fossil fuel production or use in OECD countries. Reforming fossil fuel subsidies can contribute to achieving economic and fiscal objectives, while also tackling environmental problems like climate change.
