The role of a state is of key significance for implementation of sustainable development. It collects funds that will enable realization of the concept of sustainable development by means of various instruments. The most common instrument for collection of funds is ecological taxes. This paper indicates the significance, elements, advantages and disadvantages of ecological (green) taxes and it describes the emergence of this fiscal instrument that required a tax reform. The concept of negative external effects is also explained in this paper, as well as the ways of finding a solution for this phenomenon. Arthur Pigou, a „father of ecological taxes”, recommends internalization of external effects.
