ABSTRACT
An increasing significance has been given to environmental taxes. The European Union has introduced a carbon dioxide tax implementing Council Directives in order to prevent stronger emissions of CO2 and greenhouse gases. The Republic of Croatia should follow the experience of European countries in the implementation of such environmental taxes that have positive financial effects and preserve the environment. Hotel industry is the major energy consumer and water pollutant. The research on eco-taxes that would stimulate the application of renewable energy sources and foster the construction of eco-hotels should be conducted. It is important to enable the development of hotel industry without the negative impact on environment. Hotel operating, while respecting ecological principles, preserves environment and business savings. Environmental taxation must be simple, clear, planned and justified. Funds collected by such taxations are distributed to the researches and the improvement of the quality of the environment.
