Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Environmental protection and resource management activities include not only those where the primary purpose is environmental protection but also activities which are not necessarily carried out for environmental protection reasons but which nevertheless produce clear, measurable environmental benefits. An example is spending on energy-saving equipment.
