Environment Taxes 2018
€5.1 billion of environment related taxes were collected in 2018, a drop of 2.5% on 2017. This was the first substantial decrease since 2009 and is explained by a drop in taxes paid on light hydrocarbon oil products and motor tax. Energy taxes (mainly taxes on transport fuels) accounted for 62% of total environment taxes in 2018 with another 38% coming from Transport taxes (including motor tax and vehicle registration tax).
