The value of environmentally related taxes was 4.49 billion euro in 2013, representing 7.7% of total revenue from taxes and social contributions (9.3% in 2012). The decrease in the contribution of environmentally related taxes was due to the reduction in revenue from these taxes (-10.7%), determined, in particular, by the reduction of taxes on oil and energy products, whereas total revenue from taxes and social contributions increased by 8%.
According to the information available for 2012, in Portugal, the share of environmentally related taxes in total revenue from taxes and social contributions stood slightly above EU27 average.
