The judgments are:

  • LOW (Red): the instrument is likely to yield a less than 10% reduction in carbon associated with demand for the product/service category due to its effectiveness and scope
  • MEDIUM (Yellow): between 10 and 30% reduction
  • HIGH (Green): >30% reduction

An initial judgment is formed of the potential level of success of the instrument in reducing consumer demand for high carbon goods and services, and the embodied carbon and usage emissions.

The judgments are categorical rather than fully quantitative.

The judgments here are therefore LOW (the instrument is likely to yield a less than 10% reduction in carbon associated with demand for the product/service category due to its effectivness and scope); MEDIUM (between 10 and 30% reduction) and HIGH (>30% reduction).
