Resource or Project Abstract

Environmental accounts provide information on emissions and resource use. Environmental accounts are so-called satellite accounts to the national accounts, which provide a comprehensive framework to present economic data in a coherent, consistent, and internationally comparable manner. Environmental accounts are specifically designed to reveal the pressure the economy puts on the environment, and are therefore an essential input to policy analysis and design (Nordhaus and Kokkelenberg, 1999). The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) has been commissioned by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to design and build a sustainable development model for Ireland (ISus) that will forecast environmental emissions and resource use for the Republic of Ireland up to 2030. The ISus model is driven by the HERMES model, which projects economic production and consumption per sector (e.g., Fitz Gerald et al., 2002). As with any such model, data are the starting point for the development of ISus (O?Doherty and Tol, 2007). These data are gathered in the environmental accounts. We present new environmental accounts for the Republic of Ireland. The new accounts have a wider coverage than the CSO environmental accounts. Because the new accounts assign emissions and resource use to production, they can readily be used in economic models.

The environmental accounts presented in this work are new accounts for the Republic of Ireland and aim to cover more emissions and a longer time period. The environmental accounts presented are consistent with the SEEA, but still cover only a small fraction of the full environmental accounts. Particularly, expenditures on environmental protection, and the monetary value of pollution and resources is omitted.
