From the Global Energy Institute
As governments increasingly use tax as a tool to achieve green policy goals and make corporate behavior more sustainable, the global green tax landscape, in the form of both incentives and penalties, is evolving rapidly and becoming more complex.
KPMG has created The Green Tax Index to increase awareness of the complex, fragmented and rapidly evolving green tax landscape worldwide. The report surveys and ranks the green tax codes of 21 countries.
Renewable energy and fuels is one of the policy areas where governments are most active in putting tax incentives in place including the governments of developing and emerging economies.
