Food Ethics Council
Event date
Event time
15:30-18:00 BST

This online “food policy trial” event held by the Food Ethics Council will consider the idea of a carbon border adjustment tax and its potential impacts on food outcomes. The event does not start from the premise that a carbon border adjustment tax is necessarily a good thing but aims to critically explore its merits and pitfalls.

Speakers will include:

  • Professor Dieter Helm, Professor of Economic Policy at the University of Oxford;
  • Angela Francis, Chief Advisor, Economics and Economic Development, WWF-UK;
  • Chiara Putaturo, EU Inequality and Tax Policy Advisor, Oxfam;
  • Jack Watts, Agri-food Policy Delivery Manager, National Farmers’ Union (NFU).

Register here. The event takes place 15 June 2021 at 15:30-18:00 BST.
