Step 6: Compilation of physical environmental asset accounts Non-produced environmental assets are those for which neither ownership rights are enforced nor direct economic benefits are derived from their use. They include air, water, land in the wilderness, forests which are not commercially exploitable as well as those economic forests that exhibit significant environmental amenities, and wild fauna and flora; they might or might not be protected (from economic uses).
_. § 42 K Oda, K Arahara, N Hirai and H Kubo related to environmental protection as a separate subcategory. The supply and use of these services are thus explicitly recorded. Imputed environmental costs Natural assets are used as a place of disposal for the residuals of economic activities (production and consumption) and as a source of resources and space necessary for economic activities. With the economic use of natural assets, however, natural assets change quantitatively (depletion) as well as qualitatively (degradation).
Step 7: Compilation of emissions by economic sector The compilation of emissions, including discharge of wastes, from polluting sectors is required for applying the 'cost-caused' concept of maintenance costing of the SEEA (see step 8, below). WS 7 shows the tabulation of emissions, typically found in environment statistics. As in the case of renewable resources, only emissions that cannot be safely absorbed by environmental sinks should be recorded and costed in principle. a. a. a. a. a. a. a.
