Les entreprises touchées par le marché du carbone québécois sont-elles favorables à celui-ci ? Quelles sont leurs préoccupations ? Quelles préférences ont-elles quant à l’utilisation des revenus du Fonds vert ? Voilà le type de questions auxquelles répond une enquête dont les résultats sont publiés aujourd’hui dans un rapport Bourgogne CIRANO-IEDDEC, Enquête sur les entreprises touchées par le Système de plafonnement et d’échange de droits d’émission de gaz à effet de serre du Québec, rédigé par Erick Lachapelle, Jacques Papy, Pierre-Olivier Pineau et Hélène Trudeau. Comprendre ce portrait est d’autant plus important aujourd’hui que la Californie a proposé une refonte majeure pour son marché, après 2020, qui pourrait venir ébranler le marché québécois et compliquer l’atteinte des cibles de réductions de gaz à effet de serre (GES) du Québec.
