Description

These statistics on environment-related taxes and charges describe the amounts and shares of total tax revenues of the environmental taxes and charges collected by the public sector. They contain data on both environment-related taxes and charges and on certain environment-related royalties. The statistics on environment-related taxes and charges are produced within a unified international statistical framework as defined by bodies like the OECD and Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Communities. The co-operatively developed and approved statistical framework facilitates the collection and comparison of internationally harmonised data. In the statistics on environmental taxes by industry, environmental taxes are presented according to the industrial classification used in national accounts. In this way, the data on taxes can be connected direct to various monetary variables of national accounts.
