During the 20th Global Conference on Environmental Taxation the Green Fiscal Policy Network will host the final plenary session on Friday 27 September, between 16:15 – 17:45, at the Grand Resort Hotel, in Limassol, Cyprus.
This plenary session will explore the equity dimension of green fiscal policies from different perspectives and some of the features required to build a politically and socially acceptable discourse on green fiscal reform.
Panellists will discuss several key issues in this debate including: the tension between efficiency, equity and political feasibility in the implementation of green fiscal policies; the role of equity and distributional considerations in building political feasibility and increasing public support for green fiscal reform; whether or not environmental taxes are inherently regressive; what makes an equitable green fiscal policy; issues of revenue use and ‘tax fairness’ in the administration of environmental taxes.
