$23-billion Carbon Loophole at Drax: CO2 emissions disclosure requirements legitimately conceal the true cost of damage to the planet

Posted on Posted in Publication

This new case study shows how PAL’s Carbon Value at Risk (VaR) metric is used to determine the extent of carbon liability risk – the potential cost of damage attributable to carbon emission related anthropogenic (manmade) climate change. For users of biomass as a fuel source such as Drax power station, it highlights a potential $23bn ‘black hole’ between the expected loss and damage caused by carbon dioxide emissions over the next 25 years ($33bn) and equivalent loss and damage where biomass emissions are excluded ($10bn).
