Back Environmental protection expenditure accounts Handbook — 2017 edition

The environmental protection expenditure accounts measure the economic resources devoted to all activities undertaken to preserve and protect the environment. This information may be used to understand society's response to environmental degradation and to help to assess the effective use of economic resources to reduce pressures on the environment. This handbook aims to support the data compilers in the process of data collection, compilation and reporting to Eurostat by explaining the underlying conceptual framework (including the scope, definitions and classifications), recalling the reporting obligations under Regulation (EU) No 691/2011 and suggesting possible applications and presentations of the results.
