CREEA - Compiling and Refining Environmental and Economic Accounts

The main idea behind the CREEA project was to elaborate economic and environmental accounting principles, building upon decisions and discussions in the London Group, to test them in practical data gathering, and to show added value of having such harmonized data available via case studies. This was done in the priority areas of waste and resources, water, forest and climate change / Kyoto accounting. The core goal was to identify and solve practical issues in applying the developed accounting principles, and to showcase the relevance of this practical application to policy makers, statistical offices, etc.
