Increasing the concentration of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere is one of the challenges of modern society. The carbon tax and emissions trading system are actively used to resolve this problem. However, in the course of a detailed study of these tools, it was found that their use can negatively affect the poorest households. The regression analysis carried out in this paper demonstrates that rising inequality has a positive effect on CO2 emissions in the European Union. That is why it is necessary to modernize the current climate regulation system in order to equitably distribute responsibility for CO2 emissions. This paper has attempted to provide possible ways to co-regulate CO2 emissions and inequality: progressive taxation, carbon dividend, individual emissions trading
