CREEA was a FP7 project on compiling and refining environmental and economic accounts. The project ran from April 2011 to March 2014.
The main goal of CREEA is to refine and elaborate economic and environmental accounting principles as discussed in the London Group and consolidated in the future SEEA 2012, to test them in practical data gathering, to troubleshoot and refine approaches, and show added value of having such harmonized data available via case studies.
The work will be done in priority areas mentioned in the call, i.e. waste and resources, water, forest and climate change / Kyoto accounting. In this, the project will include work and experiences from major previous projects focused on developing harmonized data sets for integrated economic and environmental accounting (most notably EXIOPOL, FORWAST and a series of Eurostat projects in Environment Accounting).
Most data gathered in CREEA will be consolidated in the form of Environmentally Extended Supply and Use tables (EE SUT) and update and expand the EXIOPOL database. In this way, CREEA will produce a global Multi-Regional EE SUT with a unique detail of 130 sectors and products, 30 emissions, 80 resources, and 43 countries plus a rest of world. A unique contribution of CREEA is that also SUT in physical terms will be created.
