A new environmental accounting Framework using externality data and input-output tools for policy analysis

A new environmental accounting Framework using externality data and input-output tools for policy analysis

Objective

The EXIOPOL IP has 3 principal objectives: 1-To synthesize and develop comprehensive estimates of the external costs for Europe of a broad set of economic activities; 2-To set up a detailed environmentally extended (EE) Input-Output (I-O) framework, with l inks to other socio-economic models, in which as many of these estimates as possible are included. Such an EE I-O table for the EU 25 does not exist.

This will allow for the estimation of environmental impacts and external costs of different economic sector activities, final consumption activities and resource consumption for countries in the EU; 3-To apply the results of the external cost estimates and EE I-O analysis for the analysis of policy questions of importance, as well as to evaluate the impact of past research on external costs on policy-making in the EU. The IP creates hence a novel toolbox supportive to a great variety of EU policy fields, such as Integrated Product Policy, the Strategy on Natural Resources, the Environmental Technologies Action Plan, Sustainable Consumption and Production, the relation between sustainability and the Lisbon strategy, and impact assessment of related policies in general.

The objectives reflect those of the Global Change and Ecosystem Work Programme (WP), which emphasises the importance of a quantitative analysis of external effects, and the elaboration of new accounting frameworks for sustainability assessment at the micro, sectoral and macro levels. As the WP requires, the structure and outputs of EXIOPOL are very much geared to provide a basis for these new policy analytical tools as well as to strengthen the existing tools of cost benefit and cost effectiveness analysis, and also can improve the full domain of economic-environmental modelling. This strengthening w ill come from better quantitative information on the external costs associated with resource use and a broad range of emissions of all economic activities that have hitherto not been analysed in detail.
