ABSTRACT
The article discusses how economic instruments can be used to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from passenger cars in the Nordic countries. Data shows a variety in Nordic car taxation, ranging from no registration tax in Sweden over high tax in Norway and Denmark. The average CO2 emissions per kilometer for new cars is different across the Nordic countries. The mapping of different tax types on passenger cars and lorries was initiated by the Working Group on Environment and Economics.
