[C] - Environmental protection expenditure accounts
Description The regional administrationsí environmental expenditure is calculated through a methodology based on the analysis and reclassification of every single expenditure item of the regional administrationsí budgets. This process is aimed at quantifying regional administrationsí environmental expenditure consistently with the international standard definitions and classifications (Eurostat, United Nations). In particular, the aggregates resulting from the budget analysis quantify the economic resources spent by regional administrations both to safeguard the environment from pollution (atmospheric emissions, water discharges, waste, soil pollution, etc.) and degradation (loss of biodiversity, soil erosion, salinization, etc.), as well as for the use and management of natural resources (water, energy resources, forest resources, etc.) protecting them against depletion.
