  16. 16. SYSTEM: The commericial and social system’s use of polluting substances BEHAVIOUR 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 authorities on the import or extraction of specific substances. The purpose of the mechanism is to control the rate of phase out to keep both socio-economic and ecological stress to the minimum necessary. The level of fee imposed is flexible, i.e. adjusted regularly, based on information from a monitoring function of market behavior including the rate of abatement compared to phase-out goals and other factors. The mechanism includes economic feedback, returning fees collected to the economy via dividends or other routes. The adjustments, together with the dividend comprise a control mechanism that ensures the transition to an economic and safe use of the substance in the societal system.
