IPPG Legal and Regulatory Digest: Ghana’s Emissions Levy Act, 2023 (Act 1112)

The Emissions Levy Act, 2023 (Act 1112) represents a significant legislative milestone in Ghana’s ongoing efforts to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change and promote environmental sustainability. This Act imposes a levy on carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions from critical sectors of the Ghanaian economy, including construction, manufacturing, mining, and energy, as well as from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.

By targeting both industrial activities and transportation emissions, the Act aims to incentivize the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and foster the adoption of cleaner technologies.

This edition of the IPPG’s Legal and Regulatory Digest provides a detailed overview of the Act’s provisions, including the rates of levies imposed, the assessment and collection mechanisms, and the regulatory authority entrusted to oversee its implementation.
