Stefan Reichelstein participated in a online seminar organized by CEPR in London last Monday. The topic of the online seminar was Corporate Carbon Disclosures and the Path to Net Zero.
CEPR then published a policy brief that takes a position on the issue and makes recommendations for policymakers. For example, Reichelstein, along with other members of the CEPR Sustainable Finance Research and Policy Network, argues that the widespread implementation of mandatory carbon disclosures for firms can make a decisive difference in achieving net zero targets. Crucially, to succeed, mandatory carbon disclosures should be made simple, be straightforward to interpret, and be enforced with due diligence.
