In Energy Policy
In this paper we pointed out a hidden inequality in accounting for trade-related emissions in the presence of border carbon adjustment. Under a domestic carbon pricing policy, producers pay for the carbon costs in exchange for the right to emit. Under border carbon adjustment, however, the exporting country pays for the carbon costs of their...

Discussion Paper
持続可能な社会を築くためには、産業構造を転換し、地球の資源を減少させないようにすることが課題となっている。このような中で「モノを売らずにサービスを売る」というビジネスモデルは、産業と環境が両立する方策として期待されてきた。「製品サービスシステム(Product-Service Systems: PSS)」や「サービサイジング」等と呼ばれるこのアイデアは、欧米や国際機関で研究され、日本にもおいても研究されつつある。 しかし、PSSのアイデアは、未だ有効に政策展開されていない。その大きな原因は、PSSのコンセプトが未発達なところにある。コンセプトが不十分なままにして、研究者は科学的分析に取り組み、政策担当者は新規政策として活用しようとしているため、関係者の間では混乱が生じている...
