This timely book focuses on achieving a sustainable future through the reform of green fiscal policy. Green fiscal policies help not only provide the needed financing but may also serve the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations in 2015. In this volume environmental tax experts review the development of fiscal carbon policy, consider the impact of green taxation on trade and competition, analyse the lessons learned from national experiences with fuel and energy pricing, and evaluate a variety of green economic instruments. A comprehensive range of green economic instruments is evaluated, covering emissions trading schemes, energy tax systems, global natural resource consumption taxes and fiscal intervention. The contributions from leading environmental taxation scholars consider thought-provoking innovations in policy and law to deal with climate change and explore a range of fiscal strategies designed to mitigate the negative and maximise the positive effects of a carbon economy. This is a vital reference work for students and academics in environmental law, economics and sustainability, and will serve as an excellent guide for policy makers and those involved in fiscal reform.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This book is an obligatory reference for students, policymakers and academics in environmental law, economics and sustainability and will serve as an excellent guide for those involved in fiscal reforms. All in all, the sum effect of this collection of chapters is a volume that offers thought provoking contributions for shaping future environmental tax policy.' -- Marta Vilar, Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences
`Readers with an interest in how climate mitigation policy is being designed in countries especially outside of Europe, including the extent to which market-based instruments are applied, will be richly rewarded by this volume. Providing novel insights on Australia, Japan, China, Latin America as well as European countries, it addresses more generically the feasibility of unilateral action in a globalized world committed to free trade.' -- Mikael Skou Andersen, Aarhus University, Denmark
`This book clearly and helpfully lays out the political and institutional context in which climate policy has been made in countries around the world. Don't expect stylized theories here. There's reality instead, as convoluted as it comes.' -- Richard S.J. Tol, University of Sussex, UK and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands
`This is another collection of superb up-to-date commentary around the environment and environmental taxation specifically. As the world moves towards ever greater uncertainty and concern about the environment we need to project much more intellectual capital to persuading the still considerable number of disbelievers that we humans are warming the earth up and must do something to stop that happening. I commend this collection of papers and encourage everyone to spend some time reading the contents of this book.' -- Chas Roy-Chowdhury, Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, UK
`This book will remain a useful resource for academics and students, and perhaps even the more policy-wonkery minded of the social movement/non-governmental organisation sphere.' -- Local Environment
