The SEEA EEA Carbon Account for the Netherlands

Document Summary: 
This document discusses the Netherlands' carbon account, which was developed to allow for a consistent and quantitative comparison of carbon stocks and flows in the reservoirs ‘biocarbon’ (organic carbon in soils and biomass), ‘geocarbon’ (carbon in the lithosphere), atmospheric carbon and carbon in the economy. The account provides a comprehensive overview of stocks of carbon in its many different forms and the ways in which carbon flows through these different reservoirs. The carbon account was based on the combination of datasets from numerous sources, combined with new modelling efforts to capture aspects of the carbon account that were not yet known.
