Publisher's Synopsis

Taxation and the Green Growth Challenge addresses the pressing issue of how economic growth can be compatible with the fight against climate change, while protecting the environment as much as possible. The book shows how decision-makers must account for the legal value of the environment as being of benefit to future generations.

With a broad approach, and a combination of legal and economic points of view, chapters discuss which tax instruments enable us to combine economic growth and environmental protection in a balanced way. This discerning book identifies the tax instruments that permit a comprehensive arrangement of underlying economic and political interests, with a view to pursuing the UN's and EU's ambitious environmental goals. The impressive selection of contributors also reflect on global initiatives and legislation as well as exploring new environmental strategies.

This book will be of great interest to researchers and scholars who wish to analyse in-depth environmental and natural resource taxation issues, including energy taxation and carbon pricing, as well as the circular economy and green taxes in the context of wider tax reforms. It will also appeal to industry advisors, policymakers and government officials.
