Market-based Instruments for Environmental Management

Politics and Institutions

International Studies in Environmental Policy Making series

Edited by Mikael Skou Andersen, Professor of Environmental Policy Analysis, Aarhus University, Denmark and Rolf-Ulrich Sprenger, formerly Director of the Environmental and Resource Economics Department, IFO Institute for Economic Research, Munich, Germany

Market-based instruments are becoming the environmental management tool of choice and have provided a new perspective on the conventional wisdom about policy instruments. This book analyses the complexities of designing and implementing market-based instruments using case study experiences from the Nordic countries, Japan, France, The Netherlands, Germany and Britain, where a range of green taxes have been introduced.

‘. . . the volume does provide the European perspective and frame of reference on environmental emissions trading of some value.’
– Peter Fusaro, The Journal of Energy and Development

‘Another in an important series of books contributing to the development of policies to combat environmental problems.’
– Aslib Book Guide
