Conceptualising a tax policy mix for resource efficiency : selected results from a three-transition pathways approach

  • Against the background of the question which role tax based instruments have to play in policy mixes to counteract the unbroken growth trend of global resource use, this chapter initially describes how the insights from a country comparative study on national resource policy frameworks could be linked to instruments for the internalisation of external environmental costs on a European scale. On the basis of a project specific but substantiated resource use vision and potential governance principles for three transition processes to reach the goals, the tax concepts are subsequently connected to simulation scenarios in order to illustrate the resource impacts that could be achieved by those policy reforms.

Conclusively, barriers to such fundamental changes of framework conditions are briefly reflected upon and some conclusions are drawn.show moreshow less
