The Dutch Government received EUR25.3bn (USD30bn) in revenues from environmental taxes and charges in 2016, according to the Netherlands official statistical agency.

Statistics Netherlands said that total environmental tax revenues in 2016 were three percent higher than those collected in the previous year, with households accounting for almost two-thirds of tax payments.

Taxes on fuel, motor vehicles, and energy consumption accounted for the bulk of these revenues, with energy tax receipts rising 10.7 percent last year. Revenue from the excise duty on fuel was EUR8.1bn in 2016, with vehicle and energy taxes contributing EUR5.6bn and EUR5bn, respectively.

Taxes on the purchases of new cars and motorcycles increased by six percent to EUR1.6bn, the report said.

Environmental tax revenue has been declining as a proportion of overall tax revenue, falling from 17.1 percent in 2011, to 15.3 percent in 2016.
