IMPUTED ABATEMENT COSTS

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Imputed abatement costs correspond to expenditures related with the measures which would be necessary to reduce the direct pressures on natural assets (for example from air emissions or waste disposal). Ideally, imputed abatement costs should always be calculated as the sum of direct and indirect cost effects of additional prevention measures.
