London Group on Environmental Accounting

   About the London Group

Current Chair: Joe St. Lawrence, Statistics Canada

The London Group on Environmental Accounting is a city group created in 1993 to allow practitioners to share their experience of developing and implementing environmental accounts linked to the System of National Accounts. It convened its first meeting in March 1994 in London, England. The name derives from the city of its first meting.

The London Group is an informal group of experts primarily from national statistical agencies but also international organizations. Participation by representatives is voluntary. The London Group generally meets annually. The meetings provide a forum for review, comparison and discussion of work underway by participants towards development of environmental accounts.

The London Group on Environmental Accounting has played a leading role over the years in advancing the methodologies of environmental-economic accounts and in providing a forum for sharing national and international expertise in the field. The most notable accomplishments of the London Group have been its contribution to the System of Environmental Economic Accounting Central Framework (SEEA-Central Framework) which was adopted as the international statistical standard for environmental economic accounts at the forty-third session of the United Nations Statistical Commission, and to the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting for Water (SEEA-Water), which was adopted as an interim international statistical standard at the thirty-eighth session of the United Nations Statistical Commission .
