    Abstract

    The costs and benefits of carbon tariffs have been extensively discussed in terms of competitiveness and carbon leakage. This Commentary argues that global welfare should be the focus. EU tariffs against developing country exports would increase global welfare and the proceeds from the tariffs could help poorer exporting countries reduce the carbon intensity of their economies.
