Abstract

In recent years material flow analysis (MFA) has become the main approach to develop indicators for socioeconomic pressures upon the environment as well as an information tool for environmental policy. Austria is one of the few countries that already have official material flow statistics based on MFA.

Carbon management will be the major issue in environmental policy for the next decades for which consistent data will be required. It has been suggested that material flow statistics could also be used for carbon accounting.

As a first step towards carbon management for Austria, material flow accounting will be used to determine the uncertainties underlying the carbon flow data for the production and waste sectors.
