GCET Conference Series

The Global Conference on Environmental Taxation (GCET) has been held every year since 2000 as an international meeting of environmental taxation specialists and a forum for the exchange of ideas and research findings on environmental taxation and other market-based instruments designed to protect the environment and foster sustainability.

The annual conferences provide an international and interdisciplinary setting to explore theoretical and practical issues concerning the design and implementation of environmental taxation. They are not intended to advance any particular environmental agenda but seek to advance knowledge and foster understanding and debate. The conferences bring together experts from many countries, representing a wide range of disciplines (law, economics, finance, environmental science, political economy, and more), sectors (academic, government and non-governmental institutions, and the private sector), and international organizations (such as the UN and OECD). As the conference series travelled around the globe over the years, it has helped build professional networks of colleagues across international boundaries that facilitate the exchange of knowledge during and outside the conferences.
