Since early 2014, IEEP has been responsible for the delivery of DG Environment’s quarterly Beyond GDP newsletter in the context of a service contract with the European Commission. The newsletter informs its readers about important developments related to measuring progress, true wealth and the well-being of nations. The third release of the newsletter in October this year focuses on recent progress made in the areas of environmental-economics and ecosystem accounting.
October’s newsletter focuses on the recent progress in environmental-economic and ecosystem capital accounting. An interview with Eurostat’s Head of environmental accounts, Anton Steurer, helps better understand Eurostat’s role in supporting progress in this field while the newsletter’s spotlight article provides an overview of recent developments.
This latest edition as well as earlier editions of the newsletter are available for download on the European Commission’s Beyond GDP website. It is also possible to receive the quarterly newsletter directly by subscribing via the European Commission’s EUROPA mailing lists.
The next Beyond GDP newsletter will be released in December this year.
