About this book

Many highly industrialized countries are rapidly adopting "new" environmental policy instruments (NEPIs) such as eco-taxes, tradable permits, voluntary agreements and eco-labels. This apparently profound shift has prompted widespread claims that NEPIs have eclipsed regulation as the preferred tool of environmental policy. This volume provides a systematic analysis of the policy and politics surrounding the adoption and use of the main NEPIs in a variety of countries.
