About Green Budget Europe

Green Budget Europe (GBE) is a Europe-wide platform of experts which works to promote dialogue and deliver progress on Environmental Fiscal Reform on the international stage and at EU level, as well as within individual European countries. Achieving these reforms in a socially equitable way is central to our mission. We are convinced that ensuring real costs of products are reflected in prices via appropriate taxes is central to protecting the climate and environment, and making decisive progress on a low-carbon energy transition.

Our focus encompasses all market-based instruments (MBI) relating to environmental policy, including environmental taxation, reform of environmentally harmful subsidies, emissions trading, promotion of renewable energy and green public procurement.

To advance its agenda, GBE brings together representatives of business, international organisations, ministries, NGOs, political decision-makers, the research community and civil society; see for further information.
