Climate policy and firms' behaviour: what can we learn from microdata?

Prof Corrado Di Maria (School of Economics)

Climate policy often suffers from pushback by businesses worried about increases in costs and loss of competitiveness. Firms, however, are incredibly heterogenous and a lot can be learned by looking more closely at large firm-level datasets. In this lecture, Prof Di Maria will discuss recent research on cost pass-through, efficiency and innovation, and the ways in which firms may end up benefiting from climate policy.

Join us in-person or online to hear about cutting-edge research from UEA’s newest professors, covering topics affecting all areas of living today. These free public lectures are open to all and there is a chance to ask questions and meet the speaker at a free drinks reception after the talk.
