This seminar examines and discusses the challenges and opportunities that companies face on their pathway towards net carbon emissions of zero. Such pathways hinge on the economic analysis of reducing corporate carbon emissions and the formulation of abatement strategies. Particular topics covered in this seminar include:
The analysis of these topics involves a review of the most current literature as well as the use of analytical and empirical research methods. As part of the seminar, participants will present and discuss the key findings of their analysis and write up their findings and conclusions in the form of a seminar paper. The seminar reflects the preparation for a master thesis at MISES.
Learning outcomes: Participants will get a better understanding of the main challenges and opportunities associated with the transition towards a decarbonized energy economy. They will also learn both theoretical economic concepts central to this transition as well as recent practical developments and tools. In addition, the participants will improve their skill in writing a coherent state-of-the-art seminar paper.
