The United Nations and the World Bank have tried to establish a new national accounts system that fully considers environmental issues, which is called the ‘Green National Account’. The purpose is to improve the traditional national accounts system, which only considers the gross national product, national production net worth, national income, personal income, and personal disposable income regardless of their impacts on the environment and consumption and therefore their economic impacts.
