Environmental taxation: A guide for policy makers


This policy guide introduces the use of taxes to achieve environmental outcomes. It outlines why countries might consider using environmental taxes (rather than, for example, subsidies), and then explores some principles for how to design effective environmental taxes, including defining the target and scope of the tax, and setting the rate. It also briefly covers how the revenues raised can be used, and how to overcome obstacles to implementing environmental taxes.
