The Thai government is taking a huge step towards tackling climate change and promoting sustainability by announcing the implementation of a carbon tax by 2025.

This initiative will be based on global best practices and international standards. The carbon tax will start with oil products, set at 200 baht per metric ton, and will be incorporated into the existing oil tax structure for a smooth, revenue-neutral transition.
