The European Commission is working on a carbon tax

Thursday 4 March 2010

The European Commission is working on a study of the impacts that a tax on carbon emissions would have in the European Union. The Commission is about to come up in the coming months with a proposal for a “green” tax.

Before the appointment of the new commissioners last year, the Commission was considering a proposal for minimum tax on energy products based on their carbon dioxide emissions as part of a broader plan to reform energy taxation in the Union.

Two months ago, the French Constitutional Council declared anticonstitutional the project for a tax based on carbon emissions proposed by Sarkozy.
