Environmental policies

Environmental issues are important drivers of policy. The government has targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, generate more renewable energy and raise more revenues from environmental taxes.

Research in this area examines whether environmental policies (in particular, environmental taxes and other economic instruments) are well designed to achieve their goals, how consumers might respond to such policies and what their distributional implications might be.
