The UK Tax System and the Environment

26 October 2006
  • Environment

The UK Tax System and the Environment examines in depth the current system of green taxes in place in the UK, their design and effectiveness, and looks at the recent history of green tax revenues and greenhouse gas emissions.  The Institute for Fiscal Studies has bought together evidence and data from a range of sources to provide a central source of information about the existing environment tax system, alongside discussion of the key principles of the debate around using taxes and other economic instruments for environmental goals.
