What’s an Emission Tax?

 

An emission tax is a tax on emissions created through industrial and commercial processes such as coal fueled electricity generation and fossil fuel burning for transportation.

It is a consumptive tax, meaning that it can be avoided and minimized.

An emissions tax is meant to discourage the use of “dirty” products and services and fund the capture of emissions and reclamation of environments. It promotes the conservation of natural resources such as coal, oil, trees, water, air and wild life.
