The Federal Planning Bureau (FPB) is an independent public agency. It draws up studies and projections on economic, social and environmental policy issues and on the integration of these policies within a context of sustainable development.
After his studies Business Engineering (Ghent University), Guy Trachez started working at the Federal Planning Bureau in 2019. As a data analyst within the Sectoral and environmental accounts and analyses team, he carries out quantitative analyses in the field of globalisation and value creation based on supply and use tables (SUT) and input-output tables (IOT).
He has contributed to the Eurostat HeterIO-project examining how conventional SUT can be broken down by alternative forms of heterogeneity, such as size, ownership, exporter status and other firm characteristics. These extended tables allow the role and impact of different types of firms within global value chains (GVCs) to be investigated.
As from January 2021, Guy participates in the drawing up and analysis of various environmental economic accounts, including the Environmental Taxes by Economic Activity (ETEA), the Air Emissions Accounts (AEA), and the Physical Energy Flow Accounts (PEFA).
European Regulation No 691/2011 obliges the member states of the European Union to deliver six environmental economic accounts. The accounts concerned are the three accounts that have been obligatory since 2013, the Environmental Taxes by Economic Activity (ETEA), the Air Emissions Accounts (AEA) and the Economy-Wide Material Flow Accounts (EW-MFA), as well as three accounts that have to be delivered as of 2017, the Environmental Goods and Services Sector (EGSS), the Environmental Protection Expenditure Accounts (EPEA), and the Physical Energy Flow Accounts (PEFA).
In this publication the National Accounts Institute presents the ETEA for the period 2008-2019.
