02 Sep 2021
The revenue of environmental taxes fell in 2019 by slightly over 4.5 per cent to EUR 6.5 billion. The share of environmental taxes of the total tax revenue was still under seven per cent. Environmental taxes paid by manufacturing fell by eight per cent from the previous year. The fall particularly concerned energy taxes paid by manufacturing. Environmental taxes paid by households remained on level with 2018. Households paid slightly over one-half of the entire revenue of environmental taxes.

Description: These statistics on environment-related taxes and charges describe the amounts and shares of total tax revenues of the environmental taxes and charges collected by the public sector. They contain data on both environment-related taxes and charges and on certain environment-related royalties. The statistics on environment-related taxes and charges are produced within a unified international statistical framework as defined by bodies like the OECD and Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Communities. The co-operatively developed and approved statistical framework facilitates the collection and comparison of internationally harmonised data. In the statistics on environmental taxes by industry, environmental taxes are presented according to the industrial classification used in national accounts. In this way, the data on taxes can be connected direct to various monetary variables of national accounts.
