- Environmental investments
- Investments in production facilities that are less damaging to the environment, such as installations for air purification, waste water treatment plants, construction of impermeable flooring, acoustic measures, etc.
The investments are classified by environmental domain:
- Other (soil, waste, noise, landscape)
If an environmental investment itself causes environmental problems, the investment needed to tackle these new problems is allocated to the domain of the initial measure as far as possible.
- Total environmental investments
- Total environmental investments (for all environmental domains).
- Other environmental investments
- Total other environmental investments
- Environmental investments in the environmental domains soil, waste, noise and landscape.
- The share of the environmental investments in total investment by industry.
From 2008 total investment only includes investment in property (excluding operational lease).
- Net environmental costs
- Net environmental costs consist of the costs of environmental activities carried out by companies themselves (capital costs of environmental investments and current costs, like operation, maintenance and monitoring of environmental facilities), paid pollution levies and payments for environmental activities contracted out, minus the received environmental subsidies.
