This paper addresses the issue of the double dividend hypothesis in climate change control policy for the Spanish economy using a dynamic GEM. The empirical analysis carried out makes clear that it is not possible to find evidence that supports the strong double dividend hypothesis, at least in the scenarios considered. The results are more varied as regards the existence of a weak double dividend.The reduction in labour and consumption taxes reduces costs as opposed to the option of returning the revenues collected by means of transfers. Otherresults show, however, that the double dividend hypothesis in his weak version should be carefully examined in light of all the facts and being aware of the different situations.
