1. Reid, Mark William. Assessing the effectiveness of the EU ETS through the oil and gas sector.

Degree: MA, Energy and Earth Resources, 2019, University of Texas – Austin

Following the initiation of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) in 2005 the scheme has received significant criticism pertaining to a lack of transparency in its operational mechanics and an inability to present conclusive evidence that it has encouraged a reduction in monitored emissions. This study utilizes an adaptation of the event study methodology proposed by Ball and Brown (1968) and Fama et al. (1969) in order to assess the impact of the EU ETS on emissions in the European oil and gas sector as a sample reflective of the scheme on the whole. In doing so, this study compares the annual emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and methane for dual listed, single listing and cross listed oil and gas companies on the New York Stock Exchange and the London Stock Exchange and how these emissions change over the period 2000-2017; from prior to the EU ETS until the period of most recent data availability. Analysis conducted on the data gathered infers that, while the EU ETS may have exerted some influence on operators’ behavior, the scheme has generally been ineffective in achieving its goal of lowering emissions and encouraging economic growth. This study also explores the limitations of the EU ETS and potential drivers of emissions changes for operators within the scheme. Through such discussion the intention is to better understand the tradeoff between the advantages of cap-and-trade, a quantity mechanism, and emissions taxation, a pricing mechanism. These mechanisms comprise the majority of the presently adopted emissions policies globally, including the EU ETS, and China’s and Canada’s emissions trading schemes. Therefore, in better understanding the implications and effects of these mechanisms, the intention is to contribute to the future adoption and implementation of global emissions policies. Advisors/Committee Members: King, Carey Wayne, 1974- (advisor).

2. Westraadt, Petrus. Ecological taxation and South Africa's agricultural sector : international developments and local implications .

Degree: 2017, University of South Africa

The study focussed on the research question namely: “How will the introduction of new ecological taxes impact the South African agricultural sector?” To answer the question, eight international eco-taxes were selected and further investigated. The nature and history of each eco-tax was examined. The effects or expected effects (where implementation have not yet taken place) of the eco-taxes on the agricultural sectors of the foreign countries, were then considered. The study continued by considering the possible impact on South African agriculture, should these taxes be implemented in South Africa. This was accomplished by extrapolating the foreign effects previously investigated. Mindful of findings, recommendations were then made of what eco-taxes could be implemented which will not impede South African agriculture. It was concluded that the British Climate Change Levy and Climate Change Agreement scheme, Australian Carbon Farming Initiative and Swedish meat consumption tax could be considered for implementation. Advisors/Committee Members: Nieuwoudt, Margaret J (advisor), Engelbrecht, A. C (advisor).
