The ABS delivered a one-day course focusing on the emerging discipline of environmental accounting to people from organisations across the public and private sectors in August 2008.

Following positive feedback from course participants, ABS is planning to run it again in May 2009.

The course covers reasons for, and conceptual underpinnings of Environmental Accounting as framed by the United Nations’ “System of Integrated Environmental and Economic Accounting” (SEEA). It also covers practical issues associated with producing these accounts and presents some case studies, both within Australia and internationally.

The course would be of interest to people requiring an overview of environmental statistics and their use and/or working in the field of environmental accounting or national accounts.

It will next be presented in ABS House in Canberra during May 2009 at a cost of $450 per person.
