We have corrected errors found in the Environmental goods and services sector (EGSS) estimates released on the 21 March 2022. The previous version displayed incorrect estimates for output, gross value added, exports and employment in the following activities: environmental consultancy and engineering, insulation activities, production of industrial environmental equipment, production of renewable energy, recycling, waste and wastewater. This has resulted in revisions to the headline estimates although the trends in the data are unchanged. This was due to human error when compiling the accounts. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The latest data for the Environmental Goods and Service Sector, which includes data for 2020, is available here UK Environmental Accounts: 2023.
