Bedford Hotel & Congress Centre, 135-137 Rue du Midi, B-1000 Brussels, Belgium

 

REGISTRATION

 

 

The conference is free of charge. 

 

WHY

 

 

The main goal of CREEA is to refine and elaborate economic and environmental accounting principles as discussed in the London Group and consolidated in the future SEEA 2012, to test them in practical data gathering, to troubleshoot and refine approaches, and show added value of having such harmonized data available via case studies.

 

WHAT

 

 

The conference aims to present and discuss the results of the project and to demonstrate the value of having such harmonized data available by presenting results of multiple case studies in priority areas. Furthermore, we will signify the benefit of such data for your individual professional efforts in a more interactive setting.

PROJECT BACKGROUND

CREEA is a FP7 project on compiling and refining environmental and economic accounts. The project runs from April 2011 to March 2014. The main goal of CREEA is to refine and elaborate economic and environmental accounting principles as discussed in the London Group and consolidated in SEEA 2012, to test them in practical data gathering and to troubleshoot and refine approaches. The data gathered in CREEA is consolidated in the form of Environmentally Extended Supply and Use tables (EE SUT) and expands the EXIOPOL database. In this way, CREEA produces a global Multi-Regional EE SUT with a unique detail of 130 sectors and products, 30 emissions, 80 resources, and 43 countries plus a rest of world category. A unique contribution of CREEA is that also SUT in physical terms will be created. In this, the project builds on work and experiences from major previous projects focused on developing harmonized data sets for integrated economic and environmental accounting (most notably EXIOPOL, FORWAST and a series of Eurostat projects in Environment Accounting). The added value of having such harmonized data available is shown in multiple case studies in priority areas, i.e. waste and resources, water, forest and climate change / Kyoto accounting.

We hope to see many of you at the CREEA conference the 25th of March in Brussels.
