1. What is Carbon Pricing and what Internal Carbon Pricing? Carbon pricing is an instrument that captures the external costs of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions—the costs of emissions that the public pays for, such as damage to crops, health care costs from heat waves and droughts, and loss of property from flooding and sea level rise—and ties them to their sources through a price, usually in the form of a price on the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted. An internal price places a monetary value on greenhouse gas emissions, which businesses can then factor into investment decisions and business operations. Companies use internal carbon pricing as a strategy to manage climate-related business risks and prepare for a transition to a low-carbon economy.
2. Why does your business need an internal carbon price? i. The signals are out there that carbon risk is real and its realities are fast approaching. Ii.

Additionally, the EU Governments has set out a pathway that will require EU businesses to report on their carbon-related risks.
