The Bundestag decided on Thursday, with votes from the coalition and the Greens, a tax on greenhouse gas emissions from fuels of 25 euros per tonne of CO2 due to climate protection. This acts like a tax and should initially climb to 55 euros in annual stages by 2025. In 2021, fuel will be around seven cents per liter more expensive. A household of average size also has to spend around 100 euros more on heating costs per year. At the same time, certain industries with particularly high energy requirements, which are also in global competition, are to be relieved of costs.

The federal government expects about 7.4 billion euros from the levy in the next year. This is intended to dampen the price of electricity by reducing the tax on renewable energies. Commuters can also deduct a higher amount from tax.


Originally, the Bundestag, with the votes of the Union and SPD, decided on a CO2 price of initially just 10 euros per ton. Although the law does not depend on the approval of the Federal Council, in the course of the climate package, under pressure from the state governments with the Greens' participation, the project was rolled out again and the higher CO2 price anchored. Therefore, the Greens in the Bundestag have now also agreed. "Better this than nothing," said parliamentary group leader Anton Hofreiter. "But we need a lot more ambition to achieve the climate goals."

The President’s Case for Tax Reform

  The President’s Case for Tax Reform Trump’s $750 bill shows the need for a wealth tax and a stronger IRS.A bombshell New York Times investigation of nearly two decades of his tax returns showed that he paid zero federal income taxes in 10 of the years from 2000 to 2015, and just $750 in both 2016, the year of his first presidential campaign, and 2017, the first year he spent in the White House. Millions of Americans counted among the working poor, including some with earnings putting them just above the poverty line, paid more in annual federal income taxes.

In the years after 2025, the tax is to be integrated into the European trade in CO2 pollution rights. Wholesalers then have to buy these certificates on the stock exchange, just like power plants or industrial companies are already doing now. Every year fewer rights are issued, so that incentives are triggered for companies to invest in more climate protection.

Similar to the EU emissions trading scheme, companies in international competition with high energy requirements are to be spared: The law that has now been passed contains an authorization for the government, according to which companies from sectors such as steel, cement or chemicals are to be relieved of the CO2 price .

The Federal Association of German Industry (BDI) quickly demanded a binding regulation: The decided increase in the CO2 price poses enormous challenges for the economy, said Vice General Manager Holger Lösch. "Anyone who burdens companies must first submit binding compensation and discharge rules for effective protection against emissions shifting to other parts of the world," he demanded. A double burden on companies with EU emissions trading is an attack on competitiveness. The Federal Association of the Energy Industry (BDEW) praised the project as an important milestone on the way to less CO2 in sectors such as transport and housing. However, the BDEW also called for a quick regulation so that, among other things, companies that are already in the EU emissions trading system are not burdened twice.
