Abstract

Cet article ré-examine la réglementation environnementale, sous l'hypothèse additionnelle que les technologies et services de dépollution sont fournis par une industrie de l'environnement en concurrence imparfaite. On montre que chaque instrument de réglementation (taxes et quotas sur les émissions; normes obligatoires; accords volontaires) possède un impact spécifique sur l'élasticité-prix de la demande de biens et services environnementaux et, par voie de conséquence, sur le pouvoir de marché des éco-entreprises et les coûts assumés par les pollueurs. Il s'ensuit, par exemple, qu'une taxe optimale sur les émissions polluantes devra dépasser le coût social marginal de la pollution, tandis qu'une approche volontaire à la réduction de la pollution ne pourra fonctionner que si la participation de l'éco-industrie (et non seulement des seuls pollueurs) est acquise.
