The global community is increasingly preoccupied with the concept of sustainability, to the extent that the traditional measure of gross domestic product (GDP) is giving way to a 'green GDP'. Many attempts have also been made to measure the degradation of the environment and the depletion of natural resources.
Environmental Accounting in Theory and Practice presents a comprehensive picture of the most modern research issues in the field, based on the experience of many countries with the introduction of integrated environmental and economic statistics, including physical accounting methods for material flows and spatial accounting for land use. Theoretical issues concerning the valuation of environmental goods and the concept of sustainability are also discussed.
The 20 chapters in the book have been written by representatives of major international institutions, national statistical offices, research institutes and universities in Europe, the USA, Canada and Asia. Together with the comprehensive bibliography and the index, they form a state of the art report on the greening of the global economy.
