Environmental Goods and Services Sector, industries; national accounts


This table presents economic data for the environmental goods and services sector by industry. It contains data on labour volume, output and gross value added of the environmental goods and services sector. Output and gross value added are measured in basic prices and labour volume is measured in full time equivalents (fte). The environmental activities can be subdivided to industries and assigned to an environmental domain; environmental protection and/or management of natural resources. In this table only those business that execute environmental activities as primary or secondary activities are classified to economic industry.

The economic data are presented in the following quantities:
-Labour volume, 1000 fte
-Output at basic prices, mln Euro
-Gross value added at basic prices, mln Euro
-Export at basic prices, mln Euro

The environmental goods and services sector consists of companies and institutions that are involved in activities with respect to measuring, preventing, limiting, minimalizing or correcting environmental damage to water, air and soil as well as 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 it is used by EU-countries accordingly.

The environmental goods and services sector is part of de Dutch system of environmental account, which brings together economic and environmental information in a common framework. The Dutch environmental accounts are compiled following the general concepts, definitions and classifications as described in SEEA 2012 and the 2008 SNA. As it is in line with de definitions and classifications of the national accounts system, there exists a small difference between environmental accounts and environmental statistics. More information on the methodology can be found elsewhere on the website of CBS.
