Current Use of Environmentally Related Taxes

All OECD member countries apply several environmentally related taxes – according to the definition agreed between OECD, IEA and the European Commission (see Box 2.1). A database operated in co-operation between OECD and the European Environment Agency (EEA) currently details about 375 such taxes in OECD member countries – plus some 250 environmentally related fees and charges in the same countries.
