UK Environmental Accounts, 2014
Environmental accounts show how the environment contributes to the economy, the impacts that the economy has on the environment, and how society responds to environmental issues. They include natural capital accounts (oil and gas), physical accounts (fuel use, energy consumption, atmospheric emissions, material flows, and water), and monetary accounts (environmental taxes and environmental protection expenditure). For 2014, experimental natural capital accounts (land use and forestry) are also included.
Environmental accounts are ‘satellite accounts’ to the main National Accounts and they are compiled in accordance with the System of Environmental Economic Accounting (SEEA), which closely follows the UN System of National Accounts (SNA). This means that they are comparable with economic indicators such as Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

UK Natural Capital – Initial and Partial Monetary Estimates
A first attempt by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to expand on existing approaches to estimate a monetary value for components of UK natural capital for the period of 2007 to 2011. ONS estimates that the monetary estimate of selected components of UK natural capital was £1,573 billion in 2011 – 4.1% lower than in 2007. This is mainly due to a fall in the monetary value of UK sub-soil assets. It is important to emphasise that these numbers reflect attempts to estimate a limited segment of the UK’s total natural capital. However, they provide an illustration of some of the methodologies that ONS is employing to value these components and how their value may be evolving over time. The methodology to develop these estimates remains under development and the estimates reported should be considered experimental. Further work will be undertaken to develop and improve them.
