Environmental-economic accounts explore how the environment and New Zealand economy interact. They measure the value and volume of many of New Zealand's natural resources, and identify which industries use them.
We compile the environmental-economic accounts using the United Nations System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA) framework, which is aligned with the System of National Accounts (SNA). The SEEA framework is based on principles, definitions, and concepts that are consistent with the SNA and allows us to reliably compare and integrate economic and environmental data.
Upcoming environmental-economic accounting releases and development work provides details about future releases.
