Revenue from Increased Carbon Tax – Consultation

Revenues from Carbon Tax – What Would You Do With It?

Carbon Tax was introduced in Ireland in 2009. Since then it has raised over €3 billion in revenue for the Exchequer.

The current rate of the Carbon Tax is €20 per tonne on all applicable fuels. The
Climate Change Advisory Council have recommended the rate be increased to €80 per tonne
by 2030, while the Joint Oireachtas Committee are of the view that a carbon price trajectory
would play an important role in the State’s response to climate change.
