Portugal - EHS

Mapping of environmentally harmful subsidies

The Portuguese government set up in 2014 a Commission for Green Tax Reform that worked on environmental taxation reform and a strategy for fiscal neutrality in 2015. The Commission worked on identifying exemptions and rebates to energy taxes and developed proposals for reforms of those exemptions (here). This interesting approach is therefore included instead of a factsheet for Portugal.
