Berlin is one of the most popular city travel destinations in Europe. However, significant information about the economic importance of the tourism industry as a whole has not been available to the public and economic policymakers until now, as this information cannot be derived directly from official economic statistics.
On behalf of VisitBerlin and the Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises, DIW Econ calculates the economic significance of the tourism industry in Berlin for the first time in the study “Tourism as an Economic Factor in Berlin” using the tourism satellite account.
The discourse on climate policy to achieve internationally agreed climate targets in Germany is often narrowed down to the instrument of CO2 pricing. A price for the emission of climate-damaging carbon dioxide is an essential building block for achieving the long-term decarbonisation of all sectors.
However, the current study by DIW Econ with Prof. Dr Claudia Kemfert, Head of the Department of Energy, Transport and Environment at DIW, commissioned by Greenpeace, shows that a price on CO2 by itself is by far not sufficient to achieve Germany’s agreed climate goals. This can only be achieved with the help of a policy mix of CO2 pricing and complementary regulatory instruments and measures.

The current study by DIW Econ, in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Claudia Kemfert, DIW Berlin, commissioned by the Bavarian SPD state parliamentary group, examines how the Free State of Bavaria can achieve a just transition into a emission neutral future. For this purpose, the study discusses specific social-ecological measures for the upcoming political reorientation in the sectors of energy, transport, buildings and industry.
