The paper makes a short presentation of the aspects concerning the growing pollution and the degradation of the environment due to the consumption of energy which is so necessary to the contemporary society. The alarm was extremely seriously taken into account. Measures were taken in this respect in almost all developed countries. The main purpose was to make the consumers as well as the beneficiaries aware of the danger. Romania, as a member of the European Union, has created the according legislative framework, but as far as the practical concrete measures, it still has a long way ahead. The introduction in the structure of the tax on property (buildings, transport means, land) of a variable which should reflect the degree of pollution of the use of the respective good will have a double purpose: first, it will make the owner aware of it, and secondly, it will contribute to the increase of the local revenues.
