Against a backdrop of intense political interest it is more important than ever to explore the role of fiscal policy in achieving environmental sustainability. Environmental Taxation and Green Fiscal Reform skilfully explores the various ranges of environmental and energy policies needed for an environmentally sustainable future.

The book combines perspectives from leading environmental taxation scholars on both the theory and impact of different policies. It covers topics on theoretical assumptions of environmental taxes, the relationship between environmental taxes and trade, permit trading and price stability, waste management, and the political economy.

With its global coverage this topical book will appeal to policy makers in government as well as academics in environmental law programs, environmental economics programs and environmental sustainability programs.
