KPMG report - United States leads in “green tax” incentives 

May 13: A KPMG study examines which countries use tax most actively as a “green policy” tool, to change corporate behavior and to achieve certain environmental goals.

The KPMG Green Tax Index reveals that six countries—the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom, France, South Korea and China—are the most active in using tax as a tool to drive sustainable corporate behavior and achieve green policy goals.

The United States tops the ranking in the use of federal tax incentives for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and green buildings.
