The decline and revival of environmentally-related taxation in Europe

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

The EU Energy Taxation Directive's low minimum tax rate for diesel along with a general dieselisation of Europe's vehicle fleet explains why revenues from environmentally-related taxes gradually declined from 1999-2008. After the financial crisis environmentally-related taxation is resuming its significance.
