Press Release: Environmental economy – statistics on employment and growth

This article presents statistics on employment and growth in the European Union’s (EU’s) environmental economy, as it is defined in the European environmental goods and services sector (EGSS) accounts. The environmental economy encompasses activities and products that serve either of two purposes: ‘environmental protection’ — that is, preventing, reducing and eliminating pollution or any other degradation of the environment or ‘resource management’ — that is, preserving and maintaining the stock of natural resources, hence safeguarding it against depletion. EGSS accounts provide information on production (output) and exports of environmental goods and services and the employment and gross value added related to their production.
