The objective of the Environmental Accounts (EA) is to integrate the environmental information in a coherent way in the central system of National Accounts. They include a set of satellite accounts, with annual transmission, compiled using the accounting formats applicable to the different sectoral and territorial areas, with a strong presence of physical data. They show the interaction between the economy, households and environmental factors.
The Environmental tax account presents the breakdown, by branch of activity and household sector as final consumers, of those taxes whose taxable base consists of a physical unit (or similar) of some material that has a proven and specific negative impact on the environment.
