As pollution is made expensive relative to pollution control, more pollution abatement will be selected by the cost-minimizing entrepreneur. Thus, the greater the degree of pollution abatement desired, the higher the tax or penalty rate should be in order to provide the desired incentives.

To improve incentives for pollution control, regulators have recently embarked on a strategy to release information to communities and markets (investors and consumers) about firms'environmental performance.
