Catalonia carbon tax Tag

Last Thursday, the Catalan Parliament passed new legislation to impose a carbon tax on any pollution-causing business activities, including the operation of polluting vehicles such as large vessels. The law follows closely behind Catalonia's carbon tax on road vehicles introduced earlier this year. The legislative package known as the "Climate Change Bill" comes with a clear aim: to reduce carbon emissions 40% by 2030, 65% by 2040 and 100% by 2050.  Learn more about this groundbreaking law - the first of its kind in southern Europe.
