UPDATED! EY's Green Tax Tracker | Keep pace with sustainability incentives, carbon regimes and environmental taxes

Governments around the world are using sustainability tax measures to reduce emissions, meet their commitments on carbon neutrality and tackle climate change, as well as to raise revenue and fund important policy objectives. While these goals are shared, the policies established to achieve them vary greatly.

Staying on top of the evolving sustainability tax policy landscape across the globe is critical for businesses that wish to take action on climate change, secure valuable incentives or avoid costly surprises. However, staying current as policies rapidly evolve can be a challenge, especially for global businesses.

EY’s expanded and updated Green Tax Tracker provides an overview of the sustainability incentives, carbon pricing regimes and other environmental taxes in effect in an ever-growing number of jurisdictions and helps monitor evolving sustainability tax policies across the globe.

A PDF version of the tracker is also available below.

(The information offered for each jurisdiction represents the best understanding of EY professionals in that jurisdiction. It is high-level and subject to change. This document is updated on an ongoing basis but not all entries will be up to date at a given moment. In addition, not all jurisdictions are reflected in the Tracker.)
