Eco-taxes. Green taxes have been introduced in a number of countries to change behaviour and raise revenue. Possible areas for greater use of green taxes and other market based instruments include water management, toxic waste disposal, pesticide use, emissions and fuel consumption. This paper by Suzi Kerr examines the arguments for greater use of eco-taxes. ?Ecological Tax Reform? is published by the Motu Research Trust for the NZ Ministry for the Environment.
