This study focuses on carbon pricing as an economic measure for significant reduction of GHG emissions in 2050, and highlights the effectiveness and economic efficiency of carbon pricing through the form of carbon tax and emission trading scheme (ETS). Furthermore, this study proposes policy packages of green tax reform and demonstrates the possibility to achieve both large GHG reductions and a decent quality of life at the same time, based on the results of quantitative analysis using two economic models, the E3ME model- a macro econometric model, and the AIM/CGE [Japan] model- a computable general equilibrium model.
