How tax policy is shaping environmental goals

Project Description

This qualitative project will look at the growth in environmental taxation and analyse the way in which different forms of environmental tax policy can shape the environmental space. It will also consider how the differing approaches in the UK devolved nations are affecting the environmental debates. For instance landfill taxes have different systems, rules and approaches in both Scotland and Wales compared to England and Northern Ireland. The project will specifically look at understanding the practice of regulating environmental taxation.
