Comments

The energy related taxes are distributed to industries based on calculations of the use of energy, and not by who in reality pays the tax. There might therefore be some differences in the summation of the total tax if comparing to data presented in the table of total environmental taxes. The taxes are distributed on industries by the national accounts. They use the relevant tax bases and used quantities on fuels in order to do this. Cases where industries have exceptions are considered.

Definitions and explanations

The used definition of an environmental tax was elaborated by Eurostat and OECD and makes comparable studies possible between different countries:

"...it has been chosen to single out the tax base that seem to have a particular environmental relevance, and to consider all taxes levied on these tax bases as environmentally related regardless of motives behind their introduction, their names etc."

According to the definition it is the tax base that determines whether or not the tax is an environmental tax.
