Natural resources

The subject group natural resources comprise asset accounts for oil and natural gas in the North Sea, land cover and land use accounts as well as forest and fish asset accounts.


The natural resource stock is measured in quantities as well as the values at the beginning and end of a year and simultaneously changes during the year are measured.

The accounts can be used in analyses of sustainability and the wealth statements of a country's total wealth and is also a first step towards a real 'green' GDP (GDP adjusted for depletion of natural resources).
