Abstract

In the political and societal discussion of climate policies, distributional effects are at the forefront of the debate. It is often argued that climate policies incur high costs on households with low income, the rural population, and families. In Switzerland, such arguments may have been important in the rejection of the revised CO2 act in 2021.

The aim of this research project is to calculate the actual distributional effects of climate policies. The analyses include different CO2-prices and redistribution-schemes and are conducted in multiple steps that cover short-run and long-run responses to climate policies. The analysis is based on microsimulations using survey data for Swiss households (SHEDS) and covers CO2-emissions from space heating and mobility.

Our results show that even under very high CO2-taxes, there are no strong redistributional effects between income groups, household sizes or the rural vs urban population.†
