Phasing out Environmentally Harmful Subsidies

Examples of EHS by category and the EHS inventory

Examples of environmentally harmful subsidies are provided here by four broad subsidy categories. The complete inventory prepared in the context of this study provides information on over 720 EHS identified in the EU. The EHS have been categorised by Member State, type of subsidy, economic sector, type of environmental impacts and relevant Sustainable Development Goals, type and magnitude of budget impacts, category of beneficiaries and other interested parties. If you would like to receive the inventory please write to the European Commission DG Environment.
