This paper concerns the welfare effects of public abatement projects, and concentrates on the influence of distortionary taxes and imperfect competition in the labor market. In addition to the direct environmental benefits and costs of resource use, abatement policies give rise to welfare effects via the tax system as well as via changes in the employment. We also show how the cost benefit rule is modified, if the other policy instrument are optimally chosen conditional on the level of abatement.
