‘Balancing with a Doughnut’: Feasta position paper on the revision of the European Commission’s Energy Taxation Directive

This paper calls for the introduction of a suite of climate-related reforms in the EU that include limiting fossil fuel production and imports at source, placing a limit on carbon fees along with a quota system, introducing per-capita allocations of revenue from a carbon fee, and forming a partnership with a group of Global South countries to promote climate justice.
