Central Bureau of Statistics Environment Protection Expenditure in Israel Dr. Moshe Yanai Yaniv Sharabi Agriculture and Environments Sector
Environment Protection Expenditure in the Manufacturing Sector Progress Report
Existing and Missing Information Information is available only regarding environment protection expenditure in the public sector There is no information regarding environment protection expenditure in the rest of the economy
How to obtain the missing data? The next phase – collect data from the Manufacturing sector The method: carrying out a survey in this sector In the future – we plan to collect data from other sectors as well
Objectives and users of the survey Evaluating the expenditure in the manufacturing sector for the protection of the environment Studying the types of technologies that are used to protect the environment Data Users: CBS: National Accounts Sector, Agriculture and Environment Sector Decision makers in the public sector National and International organizations The public
Guidelines - OECD and Eurostat Classification - CEPA 2000 (Classification of Environmental Protection Activities) Definition and Classification
What does the survey examine? The environmental aspect The technological aspect The economic aspect
Methodology Protection of ambient air and climate (environment) End of pipe solution (technology) Investment An example: Environmental equipment-”Bag Houses” Current expenditure (economy)
Included Sectors Based on the “ standard classification of all economics activates ” (Israel) - similar to the “ International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC) ” Selected Divisions of the economic sectors (ISIC): C - Mining and quarrying D - Manufacturing From E - Electricity
Complexity of data collection Lack of knowledge regarding the Environmental aspect Difficulty in identification the relevant expenditure Incomplete reporting Identification and isolation of the reporting unit Cooperation Some of the reports are based on estimations Limited tools to asses the reliability of the data
Current Situation- Attained Activities: A pilot study funding for the survey a survey schedule A revised questionnaire Sampling frame Sample- work in progress
Questions for the SV (Methodology) Hazardous wastewater- is it included in hazardous waste? Current expenditure- Why there is no separation to end-of-pipe and integrated technologies? Measurement – is it included in current expenditure? Protection of soil... and biodiversity- Why there is no separation to end-of-pipe and integrated technologies? Special producers- are all their activities considered as environmental protection? Recycling factories/ units- How are they classified?
Questions for the SV (Interaction with the establishment) How do you locate the contact person in the factory? How do you deal with the problem of the determining the exact "environment protection expenditure" Are there any control means to assure that the reported expenditure is indeed for the environmental protection? How can we find out what is the motivation behind the expenditure?
Questions for the SV (Interaction with the establishment, continued…) What is the procedure to deal with more than one site in the same company? What is the categorization system of company with different activities (industries)? How do you consider depreciation? How do you calculate the integrated technologies?
Questions for the SV (Sampling and surveying) How was your sample constructed? What was the minimum size for sampling? Why did you separate the investment expenditure into big and small? Could you describe the process of reporting online? What is the procedure for data control What indicators are produced from the survey
