As there is a broad consensus on the need for a carbon tax to cut emissions, and since the carbon tax has been in circulation in some countries of the world for about three decades now, the search for the right carbon tax is still going on.
Dr Bragagni has been so vocal among the government and business circles about the absolute necessity of reforming the carbon tax, as it is paramount to achieving sustainable development and transforming our traditional economy into a circular one.
As the global economy started to recover from its recession caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been an increased demand for products – especially consumer goods – and materials. The ongoing war in Ukraine is a major factor contributing to higher commodity prices, pushing up inflation around the world.
The cost of raw materials had been on the rise since the onset of COVID-19 about two years back. Though the pandemic has subdued, there is a war in Europe – between Russia and Ukraine, which has affected almost the entire world due to the interconnected economies.
Founded on the principle of “giving back to society”, the Esharelife Foundation is a charity with one mission – to share life in the digital era. Its ultimate goal is to create new, and support existing opportunities, for people living in the most disadvantaged areas of the world; to lift themselves out of poverty by empowering them to build a path toward a self-sufficient future.
Businesses around the globe continue to grapple with inflation brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic as well as commodity price increases brought on by disruptions to the supply chain. Amidst this ongoing volatility are the new consequences arising from the Russia-Ukraine crisis that could leave the world facing extended reductions to energy supply, severe sanctions that will likely impact food security as well as rare metal supplies needed to sustain production of key technologies.
