Further information

‘Green taxation is an important subject. Recently in the UK, HM Treasury set out a definition of environmental taxes for the UK and has sought to increase the proportion of tax revenue raised by environmental taxation. This is part of the EU agreement to encourage “green tax” reforms and increase their effectiveness. Globally, there is renewed interest in the implementation of environmental taxation and measuring the greening of the tax system. Increasing concerns over the costs and impact of climate change and over reliance on carbon energy have underlined the need for suitable strategies. It is proposed that a percentage of GDP will be allocated to tax revenues from green taxation. This is a timely volume and provides well informed case studies and analytical discourse that covers in breadth the various forms of green taxation. These essays are from leading scholars in the field. Policy makers, lawyers, economists and political scientists will find the essays rewarding, informative and essential reading.’
– John McEldowney, University of Warwick, UK

Green Taxation and Environmental Sustainability explores the critical issue of how taxes can be applied across relevant environmental areas – including transport, nuclear power, and water and waste management – to achieve sustainability.

Containing topical chapters written by environmental experts, the book covers a number of key issues, including: interaction of biofuels and EU state aid rules; territorial differences for transport fuel demand; electric vehicles, taxation and electricity transmission; public policy issues on the disposal of high-level radioactive waste in Japan; landfill and waste incineration taxes; and many other topics.

This insightful study will appeal to policy makers in government, as well as to students and academics in environmental law, environmental economics and environmental sustainability.
