Summary
This report examines the UK environmental tax system as it exists in 2006 under three broad headings: transport, natural resouces, and energy. It considers the pros and cons of using economic instruments rather than regulation for environmental protection, and examines the historical scale of environmental tax revenues for the exchequer, providing a comparison with other OECD economies. It then discusses the UK's environmental targets and progress towards them, before providing a detailed discussion of each of the main measures currently in place. Drawing on economic theory and empirical analysis, it considers the effectiveness of the design of each instrument, and then provides details of revenue, distributional impact and evidence on their effectiveness. Whilst the focus is on tax instruments, the report also analyses the growing importance of emissions trading schemes. Finally, it considers where environmental taxation may go in the future, such as the possible implementation of a carbon tax or a road-user charging system
