Green Taxes as a means of financing the EU budget: Policy Options (GBE)

This study by Green Budget Europe for the Greens/European Free Alliance Group in the European Parliament examines how the EU budget is financed and proposes options for potential future ‘green own resources’ to finance the EU budget. The revenue options discussed in the study include environmental taxes (road fuel taxes, carbon taxes, energy taxes) and the use of fines from the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).
