Zero Carbon Commission calls for cross-sector carbon tax

The Zero Carbon Commission has urged the government to introduce a gradually rising carbon tax across most sectors of the economy, growing from £55 per tonne in 2025 to £75 per tonne by 2030. It said there is strong support for decarbonisation in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, with the public preferring a slower, greener recovery to one which is faster but less environmentally friendly.
