CIoT issues green tax report

‘The question then becomes “in what way will tax be deployed in achieving
these environmental goals?” Will taxes be used creatively as agents to modify
and change behaviour, or imposed in a blunt manner to penalise ‘bad’
environmental practices, possibly using the revenue to reward the
environmentally good?,’ said CIoT president Nick Goulding.
