Environmental subsidies

 Issue Description

The SEEA-2003 does not provide a definition for environmental subsidies. A definition as well as a taxonomy of what constitute environmental subsidies and their recording in the 2008 SNA should be developed. Examples of questions to be addressed are: should transfers to public authorities and to households be considered environmental subsidies? Should capital transfers be included as part of environmental subsidies? Should off-budget (e.g. preferential tax treatments or external cost references) be included? Should environmentally-motivated or potentially environmentally damaging be identified from within environmental subsidies?
