Environmental protection is a major topic on the political agenda of modern societies. Handling environmental problems and taking precautionary actions to prevent future threats are important objectives and goals of main strategies of national policy-makers and international organisations (Water framework directive, European climate change program, REACH directive, EU SDS, Europe 2020, Environment action programme, etc.)
To detect and measure environmental problems, target future actions and develop effective policies, the collection and analysis of statistical information on the environment is of utmost importance. Public and private stakeholders need reliable and up-to-date statistics of the highest quality, comparable over time, between national economies and territories.
Environmental-economic accounts provide the conceptual framework to understand the environment and its relationship with the economy – with special reference to the industry classification NACE – including the impacts of the economy on the environment and the contribution of the environment to the economy.
