Share Could a carbon tax work for Oregon’s economy?

Event Details

Please join Portland State University's Northwest Economic Research Center (NERC) and Institute for Sustainable Solutions for a breakfast discussion exploring the economic possibilities of a carbon tax for Oregon.

NERC’s new report, “Carbon Tax and Shift: How to Make It Work for Oregon's Economy” reveals that a statewide carbon tax and shift policy could generate annual revenues of $1 billion or more for Oregon while also shrinking income and business taxes and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

British Columbia enacted a similar tax in 2008, hear from a top official about economic and environmental results.
