A gradual shift of today’s taxes away from personal income and capital towards taxes on consumption, pollution, and inefficient use of energy and resources can boost employment, eco-innovation and protect the environment. The conference brought together policy-makers, experts, stakeholders and the general public to explore the contribution that taxation can make to sustainable development and how it can promote policy objectives, especially within environment and energy. The first day was a closed session for practitioners. The second day was a stakeholder meeting. Videos from the speakers can be viewed at the link below.
