In 2013, the Nordic Ministers for the Environment decided to strenghten the measurement of green estimates of welfare and socio-economic developments. The report Making the Environment Count is describing how statistics on the environment and the economy thorugh the System of Environmental-Economic Accounts can be used to enable cross-sectorial analysis. The report proposes indicators that can be compiled annually in a Nordic context through existing statistics linking economic statistics to environmental statistics.



On-going initiatives and processes

This is an inventory of the many initiatives and processes that are currently on-going in various institutions that have green economy or sustainability issues on their agenda. It is the contribution to the action point 4, to suggest a way to report an overview of on-going Nordic initiatives on the theme of establishing regular measurements to complement GDP. During the meetings of the Ad Hoc Group we have discussed the various processes that are on-going in this field and decided to report them in this annex.
