Dutch Government modernises tax system for green shift

The Hague – The Dutch government will use a new tax system to encourage the shift to a greener economy and to help it achieve its carbon reduction goals.

At its core, the plan involves reducing income taxes and increasing taxes in the areas of energy, environment and consumption. Changes include:

  • A reduction in landlord levies for those who lease sustainable housing;
  • Increasing energy, aviation and landfill & incineration taxes;
  • Shifting energy taxation from electricity to natural gas;
  • Introducing a carbon floor price – a minimum price for CO2 production from electricity generation.
