In its role as a scientific think tank, MCC recommends carbon pricing as a core instrument of climate policy. It can be socially balanced, as our carbon price calculatorshows (see screenshot above). In the months leading up to the German climate package in 2019, MCC held intensive talks with ministries, the Chancellery, and various interest groups; the expert report "Options for a Carbon Pricing Reform" developed at the institute was presented to the Climate Cabinet in the presence of the Chancellor. The MCC continuously provides further contributions, and is in exchange with policymakers and other stakeholders nationally and internationally.
