Together with the Association of Environmental Justice in Israel (AEJI), we drafted a position paper on implementing a fair carbon tax. Carbon tax is a regulatory instrument to reduce greenhouse gasses emissions that contribute to global warming. One of the criticisms on carbon tax is its regressive affect. Low-income household would pay a larger percent of their income.

The paper drowse on economic research done by the AEJI. The paper, written in Hebrew, is directed to policy makers. It suggest different methods that can be adopted to reduce the regressive effect of such tax.
