The System of Environmental-Economic Accounting 2012 - Applications and Extensions (SEEA Applications and Extensions) provides potential compilers and users of SEEA based environmental-economic accounts with material to show how this information can be used in decision-making, policy review and formulation, analysis and research. The SEEA Applications and Extensions provides a bridge between compilers and analysts allowing each to recognise both the potential uses and the related measurement considerations. It is a companion document to the SEEA Central Framework which was adopted as the initial international statistical standard for environmental - economic accounting in 2012.




In 2012 the international statistical community adopted the international statistical standard for environmental-economic accounting and the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting 2012–Central Framework (SEEA Central Framework) was finalized by the Statistical Commission. The adoption of the SEEA Central Framework responded to the growing number of calls for information on the relationship between the economy and the environment to aid in the understanding of numerous policy issues, including those related to sustainable development.
