Sustainable Economic Growth with pollution fees

  1. 1. At the start of the last century most wereconvinced flying was an impossibility
  2. 2. In the 21st century, most are convinced transitioning to sustainability is animpossibility (With economic growth at the same time) The Swedish Sustainable Economy Foundation – tssef.se

  11. 11. Stopping the leakage of money and resources from the nationand the national economy, is good business and in effect grows the economy as the money recirculates

  13. 13. returnResources procure use
  14. 14. Systems that emit have beencheaper
  15. 15. CONTROL ENGINEERINGthe engineering discipline that designssystems to produce desired behaviors.Typical for control engineeredenvironments:• sensors measure the behaviour of theobject being controlled• feedback to• actuators that can make correctionstoward desired performance.
  16. 16. SYSTEM: The commericial and social system’s use of polluting substancesBEHAVIOUR DESIRED: That market forces act to transition technical infrastructure, management and praxis so emissions reach a reasonable, acceptable level. SENSORS: Economic indicators of sales of clean tech, sales of pollutant-bearing substances, financial indicators of e.g. futures contracts and technilca indicators on emissions. FEEDBACK: Figures are collated and fed to expert committee. ACTUATORS: The regular import/extraction fee that is adjusted to ensure behaviour of system.
  17. 17. Flexible emission control fees are tariffs imposed by authoritieson the import or extraction of specific substances.The purpose of the mechanism is to control the rate of phaseout to keep both socio-economic and ecological stress to theminimum necessary.The level of fee imposed is flexible, i.e. adjusted regularly,based on information from a monitoring function ofmarket behavior including the rate of abatement compared tophase-out goals and other factors.The mechanism includes economic feedback, returning feescollected to the economy via dividends or other routes.The adjustments, together with the dividend comprisea control mechanism that ensures the transition to aneconomic and safe use of the substance in the societal system.
