The Institute for Climate Economics (I4CE) is a think tank with expertise in economics and finance whose mission is to support action against climate change. Through its applied research, the Institute contributes to the debate on climate-related policies. It also publicizes research to facilitate the analysis of financial institutions, businesses and territories and assists with the practical incorporation of climate issues into their activities.

I4CE is a non-for-profit organization, created by the French Development Agency and the Caisse des Dépôts.

The intern will work on (i) climate policy on carbon pricing, in order to update in 2022 the annual global carbon accounts report and (ii) tax exemptions in France that are climate-friendly or damaging climate, coming from the assessment of the French State budget.

(i) This report reviews carbon pricing policies all over the world and helps to better understand how investments in low-carbon products can be fiscally advantaged.
(ii) Climate-harmful tax exemptions (such as fossil fuel tax exemptions) must be analyzed to better understand how to reduce them.

The intern will be part of the “economics” program, which concerns itself with research on public finance and budgetary policies related to climate action.
