Abstract

In Korea, a measurement strategy for Green Economy has been implemented through three approaches; indicator sets, environmental accounts, and green industry statistics. First, Green Growth Indicators (GGIs) and Green Life-style indicators (GLIs) have been compiled as a statistical indicator system for cross-check and evaluation of green growth policies. An official website, where these indicators are included, has been constructed and open to the public in order to help both the government and members of society recognize green policies and their performance. Second, a system of environmental-economic accounts (SEEA) has been developed for monitoring environmental policies and concrete activities of Green Growth strategy. Finally, the green industry statistics have been compiled to measure the greening level of the economy.
