What impact has globalisation had on transport? And what have been the consequences for the environment? This book aims to answer these questions and more. This book looks in detail at how globalisation affects activity levels in maritime shipping, aviation and road and rail freight; assesses the impact that changes in activity levels have on the environment.
This paper addresses the scope for CO2-based differentiation in motor vehicle taxes, both under conditions of equilibrium and in the context of the current global recession.
This paper provides a survey of taxes on motor vehicles currently applied in OECD member-countries and the extent to which these taxes are structured to provide incentives for the purchase and use of vehicles that are thought likely to yield a lower level of CO2 emissions.
This paper compares CO2-related tax rate differentiation in motor vehicle taxes in OECD member countries, drawing on information available in the OECD/EEA database on instruments used for environmental policy.
The present paper compares the use of CO2 or energy efficiency tax rate differentiation in OECD countries at present.
