Definition: Specialised producers of environmental services


Some enterprises (both privately and publicly owned) and separately identified departments of large municipalities have the production of environmental protection services as their main activity. These are mainly activities within NACE/ISIC 90 such as (NACE Rev 1.1):
§       90.01 Collection and treatment of sewage
§       90.02 Collection and treatment of solid waste
§       90.03 Sanitation, remediation and similar activities.
Specialised producers could also include environmental management activities provided by environmental consultants, the activities of e.g. volunteer environmental organisations or secondary environmental activities in e.g. NACE 37 Recycling, if such information is available.
