This document provides preliminary quantitative estimates of direct budgetary support and tax expenditures supporting the production or consumption of fossil fuels in selected OECD member countries. This information has been compiled as part of the OECD‟s programme of work to develop a better understanding of environmentally harmful subsidies (EHS). It is also intended to inform the on-going efforts of the Group of Twenty (G20) nations to reform fossil-fuel subsidies. It may be seen as a complement to the information on fossil-fuel consumption subsidies that has been compiled by the International Energy Agency (IEA), primarily for developing and emerging economies.
