The Fifth Annual Global Conference On Environmental Taxation: "Economic instruments for sustainable mobility"
The conference provides a forum for the exchange of research findings, ideas and information about environmental taxation across international boundaries and disciplines. The aim is directed to show, through best practices, how market instruments can give an important contribution to change deep-rooted habits, both imposing financial burden on less desirable and providing incentives to virtuous ones. The fifth annual conference on environmental taxation will mainly focus on the use of taxes and other economic instruments to achieve the aim of sustainable mobility.
During the first day the conference will focus on two main topics: the use of environmental taxation to tackle traffic generated problems in urban areas and the comparison of environmental taxes with other market-based instruments in addressing environmental problems . Topics will particularly include:
- Environmental taxation for sustainable mobility in urban areas;
- A comparison of environmental taxes with other market-based instruments in addressing environmental problems: tradable permits, voluntary agreements, subsidies.
