“What is the effect of the CO2 tax on environmental performance and profitability of firms? Does including emissions in productivity measurement of the industrial firm matter? Did the introduction of the EU ETS spur technological development in the Swedish industrial firm?” Which air pollutant inhibits production most when regulated?
A new book by researchers Rolf Färe, Shawna Grosskopf, Tommy Lundgren, Per-Olov Marklund, and Wenchao Zhou analyses firm level data from 1990 to 2008 to evaluate the role of climate policy on Swedish industrial firms’ environmental and economic performance. Sweden is an interesting case worth to study with many learned lessons when it comes to environmental policy design and implementation.
This book will become an integral part in the reading list of the forthcoming course on Productivity and Efficiency Analysis with Focus on Modeling Bad Output Technology. The course will take place starting on December 2016 as part of the Environmental Economics Master’s Programme at Umeå School of Business and Economics.
