Putting a price on carbon can encourage low-carbon growth and lower greenhouse gas emissions. More and more, business leaders are standing up in support of a price on carbon. Already, nearly 40 national and 20 sub-national jurisdictions are already participating or preparing for a carbon price. The UN Global Compact calls on companies to set an internal price at a minimum of $100 per metric ton over time.
