Carbon pricing is the concept of adding a price tag to a tonne of CO2e to allow countries to reduce global warming through a trading system. The main variables that affect the pricing are from national taxes or permits (see carbon credit and carbon market).

A carbon price aims to incentivise businesses and individuals to reduce carbon-intensive activities by applying a cost to CO2 emissions.
