Theme in brief

Environmental surveys

Environmental surveys deal with such environmental burdens as waste and both air and water pollution. Environmental statistics reflect, for instance, the extent to which water resources are used or waste is produced and recovered. In addition, the environmental protection costs incurred by enterprises and local units are determined. Furthermore, information is collected on environmental investments, for instance, aimed at protecting the climate or using renewable energy sources.
