This research report, Towards a Green Net National Product for Ireland, sets out the importance of incorporating a set of Environmental Accounts into the national accounts and develops data and resources that contribute towards measuring Ireland’s green net national product.  The ESRI research team, led by Dr John Curtis, found that whereas national governments devote considerable resources to measuring economic performance, fewer have been devoted to measuring how economic activity affects the environment, or how natural resources and a clean environment contribute to economic growth and well-being.
