Environm. goods and services sector; industries, ec.indicators, 2001-2012


This table presents economic data for the environmental goods and services sector. Labour input, output and gross value added of the environmental goods and services sector are presented.

Output and gross value added are measured in basic prices and labour input is measured in full time equivalents (employed persons).

The environmental goods and services sector consists of a group of companies and authorities involved in activities with respect to measuring, preventing, limiting, minimalizing or correcting environmental damage to water, air and soil, and problems related to waste, noise and ecosystems (OECD, 1999; Eurostat 2009).

This definition includes 'cleaner technologies 'and 'cleaner goods and services' which reduce environmental risk and minimize the use of natural resources and pollution. The definition of the environmental goods and services sector is determined on European level and is used by EU-countries accordingly.
The group of business and institutions belonging to the environmental goods and services sector can be subdivided to industries. In this table only those business that execute environmental activities as primary or secondary activities are classified to economic industry. The ancillary activities are therefore presented separately. The activities that belong to the environmental goods and services sector can also be subdivided to environmental domains.
The before mentioned economic data of the environmental goods and services sector are presented in the following variables:
-Labour input of employed persons, full time equivalents
-Output at basic prices, mln Euro
-Gross value added at basic prices, mln Euro
