Environmental Taxation: What Have
We Learnt in the Last 30 Years?

Anil Markandya*

Basque Centre for Climate Change BC3 and University of Bath

The paper surveys the literature on environmental taxation in the context of the climate change problem. It reviews the use oftaxes as instruments of environmental management and notes the strengths and weaknesses of the applications. The performance of taxes relative to permits depends on the presence of uncertainty whose impacts are explored. The paper also reports on simulation studies concerned with double dividend implications of a carbon tax combined with a reduction in other taxes. The models for the EU find that a switch in taxation from labour to carbon/energy would increase employment, reduce carbon emissions and increase
GDP. [JEL Codes: H21, H23, Q54, Q58]

Keywords: taxation, environment, double dividend, carbon taxes.
