Economic instruments and expenditures for environmental protection

The first Environmental Performance Reviews (EPR) described the system of regulatory and economic instruments available for environmental purposes. These included (i) emission charges for air pollution, wastewater generation and waste disposal; (ii) user charges, taxes on the extraction and use of natural resources; and (iii) penalties and compensation for environmental damage. There have not been any significant changes in this basic legal framework, in particular regarding pollution charges, although penalties were increased in 2007. User charges have also been raised and new rules have been introduced for the calculation of waste fees.
