Environmental and economic accounts

Seit einiger Zeit veröffentlicht das Statistische Bundesamt neben der Volkswirtschaftlichen Gesamtrechnung (gross domestic product nach Entstehung und Verwendung) auch eine Umweltökonomische Gesamtrechnung.
The statistics show the interactions between the environment and the economy. They record the degree of environmental pollution, the state of the environment and the measures taken to protect the environment. However, this gives rise to major problems, since a uniform assessment of environmental damage is not possible.

There is also no uniform assessment basis. Air pollution and water pollution cannot be expressed in terms of money. The information service of the Institut der Deutschen Wirtschaft (IWD) has come to the conclusion that only very limited environmental policy guidelines can currently be taken from the results of the overall environmental-economic accounting.
