Abstract

This paper further refines the OECD framework for measuring the environmentally adjusted multifactor productivity growth that seeks to incorporate environmental services in productivity analysis. Compared to standard productivity measurement, this framework allows accounting also for the use of natural capital (currently including 14 types of fossil fuels and minerals) and the emission of pollutants as negative by-products (currently including 8 types of greenhouse gases and air pollutants). An updated series of the indicator is presented, with a geographic coverage extended to all OECD and G20 countries for the 1990-2013 time period. The indicators presented here allow the sources of economic growth to be better identified, and growth prospects in the long run to be better assessed. Le présent rapport affine le cadre de mesure de la croissance de la productivité multifactorielle corrigée des incidences environnementales utilisé par l’OCDE pour incorporer les services environnementaux dans l’analyse de la productivité. Comparé à la mesure classique de la productivité, ce cadre permet également de tenir compte de l’utilisation du capital naturel (actuellement 14 types de combustibles fossiles et minéraux) et des émissions de polluants en tant que sous-produits négatifs (actuellement 8 types de gaz à effet de serre et polluants atmosphériques). Une série actualisée de cet indicateur, dont la couverture géographique s’étend à tous les pays de l’OCDE et du G20, est présentée pour la période 1990-2013. Ces indicateurs permettent de mieux identifier les sources de croissance économique et de mieux évaluer les perspectives de croissance sur le long terme.
