The conference includes a series of parallel sessions that will analyse the economic, legal and behavioural issues associated with sustainable economic development. More specifically, it will cover topics such as taxes, fees, subsidies, emissions trading and voluntary approaches to environmental protection. A selection of the best contributions will be published in the annual conference proceedings publication ‘Critical issues in environmental taxation’.
The event is aimed at international academics, government officials, non-governmental organisation representatives and private-sector professionals. Previous events have attracted delegates from over 50 countries from a variety of disciplines and sectors, and have helped disseminate best practice in implementing tax policy measures to achieve economic growth while protecting the environment. Networking opportunities will include a reception, conference dinner and various breaks between the sessions.
