On March 2016, the 3rd Green Taxation Inter-ministerial Committee released comprehensive policy recommendations to promote the use of oil substitutes through:
- economic incentives
- focus on the environmental benefit
- emphasis on the country’s energy security
The recommendations include a differentiated taxation policy (“Green” Progressive Taxation) for the three fields related to energy for transportation:
- fuel types
- motor vehicles
As for June 2017 the recommendation should be approved in the finance committee in the Israeli parliament in order to become effective.
