Since environmental issues entered the global agenda, governments are directing businesses towards sustainability. The term "sustainability" is commonly associated with firms' care for the environment, although there are two other areas in which companies should be sustainable: social, to achieve an adequate relationship and fluid communication with their stakeholders; and economic, to accomplish transparent management and correct distribution of the wealth that is generated. The growing demand for corporate transparency encourages the publication of sustainability or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reports, providing information of a non-financial nature concerning the social and environmental dimensions of business activity, namely relations with local communities, the protection of human rights, corporate governance, and adaptation to climate change. Being no exception, and following the European agenda for sustainability development, several governments have implemented tax measures that promote sustainable consumption and production patterns, to reduce energy dependence on external sources, to efficiently achieve international targets, among others, within a context of neutrality of the tax system.This is where environmental tax incentives come in, underlying a paradigm shift. The relationship between tax policy and environmental policy is seen by governments as an opportunity to adjust the tax system to a more energy-efficient economy in the use of resources. For instance, green tax incentives motivate investors to invest in green properties, encouraging them to go green. That is, tax incentives should be looked at as a tool to allow taxpayers to change actions that may reduce carbon emissions and contribute to sustainability.


Through applied research, involving researchers and professionals who are interested in these subjects this book intends to contribute to increasing green tax literacy, to build the capacity of companies to adopt sustainable practices in favour of environmental protectio, to raise companies' awareness of sustainable reporting and to increase international discussion on the issue of environmental taxation and its impact on more sustainable business decisions.
