Perspectives of the Environmental Taxes Evolution in the European Union
AbstractDue to its trans-sectorial nature and to its direct interference with the economic growth, the environmental policy of the European Union is facing a series of specific problems. For example, the adoption of certain environment protection measures, among which the implementation or increase in environmental taxes sometimes generates tensions and opposition, especially from the polluters who denounce restrictions in the industrial development. As a result of the recent downtrend in the environmental tax revenues in the member states of the European Union, the objective of this paper is to foresee the perspectives of the evolution of environmental taxes in the world current economic context.
