A primary aim of this book (and the Conference on which it is based) was to generate an academically well grounded comparative study of the use and misuse of fiscal measures – especially green taxation: to encourage environmental protection and improvement in particular jurisdictions (and across jurisdictional borders); and to discourage behavior leading to environmental damage and degradation in particular jurisdictions (and across jurisdictional borders).
We were also interested in the revenue outcomes of such measures – and the way such outcomes can, in turn, shape later tax and related policy – and social behavior. The book seeks to explore the scope – and limits – of green taxation in depth.
