Environmental accounts; emissions to water, origin and destination

Edit table

This table contains information about the origin and destination of emissions to water of nutrients and heavy metals. These data are part of the environmental accounts. The origin of the emissions to water can be divided into the Dutch economy (disaggregated by private households and industries) and the rest of the world. The destination can be divided into absorption by producers, drain off emissions to the rest of the world and contribution to the environmental problem. The figures in this table can be compared in a consistent way to macro-economic indicators. Furthermore, water emission accounts indicators can be derived for the emissions of heavy metals into water and the eutrophication of surface waters. These indicators can be used for supporting water policy.

Data available from:1995

Status of the figures:
To obtain coherent and consistent time series, the complete time series are (re)calculated. The latest insights, particularly with regard to the emission factors are included in the calculations.

Changes as of December 7, 2016
Figures for 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2010 have been adjusted to the new figures of the Emission Registration. The provisional figures for 2013 and 2014 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
New figures are published biannually in October, simultaneously with the appearance of the publication of the environmental accounts. The first update will take place in October 2016.
