Internal Carbon Pricing

Paving the Way for a Greener Future

Setting an internal price on carbon

Currently, there are no international standards that businesses can seek to comply with when setting an internal price on carbon (in the way they might for setting a Science Based Target or reporting to the Carbon Disclosure Project, for example). But there are still some helpful guides and initiatives that businesses can look to, such as the Caring for Climate initiative from the UN Global Compact. This initiative encourages companies to become a Carbon Pricing Champion by setting an internal carbon price, communicating progress, and advocating for the importance of carbon pricing.

Similarly, there is no definitive answer or source for companies on what  your carbon price should be, and there are a variety of ways that the cost of carbon can be integrated into business practices. This means that the most important starting point for a business considering internal carbon pricing is to understand their own drivers for setting an internal carbon price.

In the pursuit of sustainable business practices, internal carbon pricing has emerged as a powerful tool to drive positive change and align organisations with global environmental goals. Setting an internal price on carbon allows companies to assign value to their greenhouse gas emissions, fostering a culture of efficiency and innovation while preparing for an environmentally conscious future.
