It is believed that carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere are mainly regulated by ‘direct’ economic instruments - the carbon tax and the Emissions Trading System (ETS). However, a comparative analysis has shown that ‘indirect’ instruments, such as excise taxes on motor fuel and other energy taxes, did not yield any lesser impact than their ‘direct’ counterparts, and, over time, were even more effective. This is the conclusion drawn by HSE researcher Ilya Stepanov in his article, ‘Taxes in the Energy Sector and Their Role in Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions’.

Research at HSE is...

The Higher School of Economics is quite a young university but over its 25-year history it has already become one of the largest Russian universities specializing in social sciences and economics, humanities, exact and computer sciences, which makes it one of the national leaders in higher education. The university’s participation in social and economic reforms has helped to shape it as a project university, which successfully blends together education, research, development and consulting to work on large-scale projects of economic and social development.
