Mae'r cyfrifon hyn yn dangos y berthynas rhwng yr amgylchedd a'r economi. Mae hyn yn dangos sut mae'r amgylchedd yn cyfrannu at yr economi, yr effaith y mae'r economi yn ei chael ar yr amgylchedd, a sut y mae cymdeithas yn ymateb i faterion amgylcheddol.
The continued switch from coal to natural gas by the energy supply and manufacturing sectors resulted in a fall in overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2016, the continuation of a long-term trend.
In 2016, households were the biggest emitter of GHGs, accounting for one-quarter of total UK GHG emissions.
In 2016, the UK consumed 570 million tonnes of material, still below pre-2008 levels.
Measuring the contribution of the environment to the economy, the impact of economic activity on the environment, and society's response to environmental issues. Satellite accounts to the main UK National Accounts.
An examination of the size and composition of environmental taxes between 1993 and 2014. Including an analysis by type of environmental tax, a consideration of who pays the taxes and a comparison with other European countries. Main findings show that environmental taxes raised £44.6 billion in the UK in 2014, providing 7.5% of all revenue from taxes and social contributions
Estimates of greenhouse gas emissions in 2013, for which UK residents and UK-based businesses are directly responsible (whether in the UK or overseas). These estimates have been produced on a consistent basis with the UK's national accounts and provide an important indicator for the environmental pressure caused by the UK's economic activities. Main findings show that greenhouse gas emissions in 2013 were estimated to be 2% lower than in 2012, and 23.6% lower than in 1990.
This paper is a first attempt by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to develop initial experimental statistics on UK freshwater ecosystem assets and ecosystem services. Selecting a number of indicators, this paper shows the condition of UK freshwaters between 2008 and 2012. On an experimental basis, ONS also estimates that the monetary value of UK freshwaters was £37 billion in 2012, 26% higher than in 2008. This is mainly due to an increase in the monetary value of UK open waters. It is important to emphasise this monetary value is based on a limited number of ecosystem services that are covered by these accounts. The methodology to develop these indicators and monetary estimates remains under development and the estimates reported should be considered experimental. Further work will be undertaken to develop and improve them.
We take a look at land cover ecosystem accounts for the United Kingdom (UK). The land cover accounts based on data from the Countryside Survey show that the land cover changed significantly in the UK between 1998 and 2007.
