  • Asset accounts (natural resources in physical and monetary terms)
  • Physical flow accounts (energy and water use, waste disposal, and greenhouse gas emissions)
  • Environmental activity statistics (expenditures on environmental protection)
  • The applications and extensions of those accounts (attribution of physical flows to final demand and intensity measures).
