OECD

A recent publication described how environmental taxes within the OECD countries are becoming more widely used (OECD 2010). It explained that the vast majority of environmentally taxes do not raise significant revenues (on average, just below 2 per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP)) for governments, and that they do not represent a major revenue source.
