The objective of the environmental protection expenditure accounts is to provide a comprehensive overview of environmentally relevant expenditures within the Austrian economy. A distinction is made as to whether the expenditures are made by the government (incl. non-profit private organizations), by enterprises or by private households. 

The level of national environmental protection expenditure is an indicator of the relative economic importance of environmental protection. The statistics on environmental protection expenditures are based on own surveys and are published annually at the national level.
