Focus on products and/or activities

  • A straightforward approach is that of calculating total exports of environmental activities from the population database and relevant trade statistics. This approach gives reliable figures for activities, in particular for the principal producers that can easily be identified in a register (for example business register or trade register).

  • Another approach would be to pick out products from trade statistics. Export data from foreign trade statistics for each establishment can be found as long as it is possible to link companies to goods produced and services provided. If the product classification used in the trade register is detailed enough to differentiate between environmental and nonenvironmental goods, then the exports of secondary environmental producers can be found.

Data from the balance of payments

  • Focus on services: BOP statistics can be useful sources of data for trade in services. The aggregate data for waste treatment and de-pollution is usually available for all European countries. Unfortunately, it is more difficult to obtain data for subsections and for other environmental services scattered across other sections.

  • Environmental services are classified in the EBOPS with the code 282, waste treatment and de-pollution services,


Data from epe accounts

Data from EPE accounts

  • Focus on services: Table B1 of the EPEA presents supply and uses of the different categories of EP services. Some additions, subtractions and revaluations are made starting from domestic production.

  • In principle, imports are added and exports subtracted. Thus, EPE accounts, and in particular Table B1, could be a valuable aid as a source of data on trade in environmental services. However this is limited only to environmental services, usually provided by environmental specific services producers (specialised producers)
