ABSTRACT
The environment is becoming a more important element in the public decision process. Governments, non-profit organizations, civil society and firms are involved in different projects in order to protect this public good. But what does a state do in order to correct the damages brought upon the environment? This paper aims, on one side, to underline state’s fiscal leverages in order to internalize costs related to pollution externalities, and on the other side to preset clean investments encouraging instruments. The study will show that even though in Romania the fiscal pressure in high budgetary encasements obtained though environmental instruments do not help in putting in place a coherent policy with positive and visible effects upon future generations.
