In recent years, many countries are committing to environmental conservation. Following this trend, successful policy implementation of SDGs with ESG management extended to the public sector is emerging as a keyword determining the success or failure of the capital market, countries, and individual companies. Accordingly, many countries are implementing various policies related to the environment. One of them is to implement national policies by introducing environmental taxes. These policies use environmental taxes to control pollution by indirectly influencing the behavior of producers or consumers through economic incentives rather than directly interfering with environmental pollution behavior. This study examines the status of environmental taxes in marine tourism sites in Korea, reviews the effectiveness of such policies, and suggests how to improve them by identifying limitations of the current system.
