1 www.statistik.atWe process information Identifying Green Jobs - Adapting Statistical Classifications International Conference on Green Growth and Official Statistics Konrad Pesendorfer Director General Seoul 7th July 2011

2 www.statistik.atSlide 2 | 07.07.2011 Outline Green Jobs/green Economy – what do we measure? EGSS (Environmental Goods and Services Sector) Methodology Basic principles of delimitation Output Data analysis from different angles Some first results Challenges

3 www.statistik.atSlide 3 | 07.07.2011 EGSS – What do we measure? EGSS Technologies, goods and services that… Environmental ProtectionResource Management measure, control, restore, prevent, treat, minimise, research and sensitise environmental damages to air, water and soil as well as problems related to waste, noise, biodiversity and landscapes. This includes cleaner technologies, goods and services that prevent or minimise pollution. measure, control, restore, prevent, minimise, research and sensitise resources depletion. This results mainly in resource-efficient technologies, goods and services that minimise the use of natural resources.

4 www.statistik.atSlide 4 | 07.07.2011 EGSS – Output variables EGSS Technologies, goods and services that… Environmental ProtectionResource Management Green Jobs Employment within the EGSS Turnover of the EGSS Value added of the EGSS Exports by the EGSS output

5 www.statistik.atSlide 5 | 07.07.2011 EGSS – Delimitation Delimitation End Purpose Criterion: The main purpose of the technology, good or service must be environmental Progress Criterion: Integrated technologies and adapted goods should be less polluting and resource-intensive than the equivalent average technology or good used by national standard Corporates and the General Government should be covered Not included: Natural risk management activities like flood risk management Trade in EGSS to avoid double counting concerning suppliers and distributors and therefore an overestimation of the turnover

6 www.statistik.atSlide 6 | 07.07.2011 EGSS - Delimitation GoodsServicesTechnology connectedadaptedconnectedEnv. specificintegratedEnd of pipe E.g.: sceptic tanks Air filters Pollution measurement equipment E.g.: Maintenance of sceptic tanks Installation of renewable energy technologies Cleaner Goods: Electric vehicles Silent asphalt Mercury free batteries Resource efficient goods: Recycled paper Solar panels Heat pumps Correction of Pollution: Waste water treatment Waste treatment Resource depletion reduction: Recycling technologies Cleaner Tech.: Prevent pollution from the outset E.g. organic farming Resource efficient technologies: Renewable energy technologies Pollution Prevention: Waste water management Waste management Resource management: Reduction of water leaks Efficient energy use activities

7 www.statistik.atSlide 7 | 07.07.2011 Developing the Concept of EGSS 1998 - OECD and EUROSTAT handbook The Environment Industry Manual - Proposed guidelines for the collection and analysis of data on the Environment Industry 2006 - EUROSTAT starts the Task Force on EGSS as integrated technologies and resource management activities gain in importance 2009 EUROSTAT data collection handbook The Environmental Goods and Services Sector – EGSS

8 www.statistik.atSlide 8 | 07.07.2011 EGSS – fitting with other frameworks Consistency CEPA 2000 Classification (Classification of Environment Protection Activities) SERIEE (European System of the Collection of Economic Data on the Environment) SEEA (System of Integrated Environmental and Economic Accounting) New CReMA (Classification of Resource Management Activities)

10 www.statistik.atSlide 10 | 07.07.2011 EGSS Some first results…

11 www.statistik.atSlide 11 | 07.07.2011 Implementing EGSS 2009 first voluntary pilot data collection EGSS reporting year 2008 11 countries supply data on EGSS, only AT, LV and NL for the reporting year 2008 AT only two dimensions (employment, turnover) 2010 EUROSTAT Discussion of EGSS as a Module of Environmental Accounting (legal base, development 2011) 2011 EUROSTAT First official data collection (EU Member States, EFTA and candidate countries), deadline 30th June 2011 20?? Implementing the EGSS in the Legal Base on Environmental Accounting

12 www.statistik.atSlide 12 | 07.07.2011 Data Sources on EGSS in Austria Primary Statistics Information on companies specialized to environmental technologies and connected goods Survey in the service sector Secondary Statistics Short term statistics (STS) Structural business statistics (SBS) Business register Environmental protection expenditure accounts (EPEA) Energy balances Additional studies of the environmental domain Expert information

13 www.statistik.atSlide 13 | 07.07.2011 Development 2008/09 Green Economy – Total Economy EGSS 2009 – selected results Austria

14 www.statistik.atSlide 14 | 07.07.2011 EGSS 2009 – selected results Austria Employment by economic sector

15 www.statistik.atSlide 15 | 07.07.2011 Results by Type of Output: Goods – Services – Technologies EGSS 2009 – selected results Austria

16 www.statistik.atSlide 16 | 07.07.2011 Environmental Domaines EGSS 2009 – selected results Austria

17 www.statistik.atSlide 17 | 07.07.2011 EGSS – Challenges ahead EGSS – relevant information for decision making? Moving target – no single lists in EGSS Multiple Data sources Progress criterion (better than national standards): Infinity problem International comparison

18 www.statistik.atSlide 18 | 07.07.2011 Conclusions EGSS is a sound framework of measuring the size of (parts of) the green economy Consistency with existing accounting frameworks EGSS only coming out of its pilot phase Challenges ahead Methodogical Coverage Legal framework
