Publication Environmental tax reform in Europe: implications for income distribution
Although environmental tax reforms (ETR) tend to improve incomes across society, they can have mild regressive impacts in that richer households gain more than poorer ones. Care is needed to design ETRs in ways that ensure that certain groups are able to benefit equally. ETR's overall benefits for the economy, environment and society are potentially significant. ETR should therefore be regarded as a key element in the policymaking toolkit for shifting to a green economy.

Highlight European consumption still highly unsustainable, despite efficiency gains
Humanity’s growing appetite for bigger houses, overseas travel, food and consumer goods is the main cause of our most pressing environmental problems, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA) which considers the links between the environment and consumption.

Figure Greenhouse gas emissions induced by household consumption, per Euro spent of expenditure in 12 household consumption categories, 2000-2007
Trends in greenhouse gas emissions induced by household consumption, per Euro of expenditure in 12 household consumption (COICOP) categories, shown for 3 years 2000, 2004 and 2007. Emissions are based on the footprint perspective and include both emissions directly emitted by households (for example by burning fuels for heating) and emissions associated with the production of goods and services purchased by households.

Household consumption
Consumption of goods and services in EEA member countries is a major driver of global resource use — and associated environmental impacts. European consumption (food and drink, housing, mobility and tourism) is resulting in an increasing share of environmental pressures and impacts worldwide owing to burgeoning global trade. Achieving significant reductions in these effects calls for a change in private and public consumption patterns to supplement gains from improved technology and production processes.

File Intelligent shopping: energy efficient appliances
European consumers aren’t fully aware of the advantages to be gained by new and efficient electrical appliances. When buying new appliances, it is essential for the consumer to be able to make a well-informed choice. The industry, pushed by the European Commission, has invested in products able to provide a high performance while reducing the environmental impact.

Daviz Visualization D source code Share of global environmental footprints caused by different household consumption categories
The graph shows the share of direct and indirect environmental pressures (footprints) caused by EU-27 household consumption expenditure on different household consumption categories. The household consumption categories are developed from the Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP) single digit categories. COICOP one-digit includes12 broad categories of consumption. 3 pairs of COICOP categories (CP01& CP02; CP06 & CP10; CP07 & CP08) have been merged to give 9 categories in total. Shares are shown for 6 different environmental pressure types: GHGs, acidifying air pollutant emissions, tropospheric ozone precursors, material use, land and water.
