Some Positive Climate-actions for Carbon—the Polluter Pays Principle

The “Polluter Pays Principle” (PPP) was first introduced in 1972 by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) guiding Principles concerning International Economic Aspects of Environmental policies where the polluter is going to be held responsible for the environmental damage and pollution it may cause. It is based on an age-old adage of “cleaning your own mess”. For instance, a factory that produces a potentially poisonous substance as a by-product of its activities is usually held responsible for its safe disposal.
