Removing inefficient fossil fuel subsidies: good for the environment and the economy

Multilateral subsidy removal would lead to 6% less greenhouse gas emissions globally in 2050 than BAU

Impacts on GDP of unilateral subsidy phase out in 2050

(% deviation from baseline)

(1) Middle East & Northern Africa

(2) Other Asian, African and Latin American Emerging economies

support to fossil fuel production and use in advanced economies by fuel type
Support to fossil fuel production and use in advanced economies, by fuel type

Note: This graph is based on an arithmetic sum of the individual support measures identified for a sample of 21 OECD countries, i.e. the 24 OECD countries included in the inventory net of those countries for which estimates have not been collected yet (Chile, Iceland and Luxembourg). It reflects the value of tax relief measured under each jurisdiction’s benchmark tax treatment. The estimates do not take into account interactions that may occur if multiple measures were to be removed at the same time
